HC Deb 31 March 1890 vol 343 cc270-1
MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether it has come to the knowledge of the Police of Dunfanaghy that considerable alarm and annoyance has been caused to the inhabitants of that town by a ferocious dog, the property of Captain Brunker, of the Royal North Lancashire Regiment, stationed at Dunfanaghy; and whether this dog has frequently worried and maimed other dogs in the streets, unchecked by Captain Brunker; and, if so, whether he can say why this animal. is allowed to go unmuzzled, and why its owner has not been prosecuted by the police?


I am given to understand that no complaint has been made to the local police, nor has any circumstance come to their knowledge suggesting that there is any ground for such a complaint.
