Travelers’ dog in Anlaby Park school yard in Hull prosecuted | United Kingdom | New

Three Jack Russell Terriers are believed to have crawled under the fence and into the play area as the children arrived at St Thomas More Voluntary Catholic Academy near Anlaby Park in Hull on Friday. The Travelers, who are believed to possess the dogs, reportedly arrived at the adjacent land the day before.

A concerned parent said a similar incident happened about two years ago when a child was bitten by a dog. A number of parents have since written to Hull City Council asking it to do more to protect their children during recess.

But the teachers should have acted themselves because “a lot of children were very scared” last week.

A parent, whose young son attends primary school, said live shell: “I am so worried that our children are being put in danger with dogs on the loose. The traveling community arrives at the playground next to the school at this time each year, which is very well managed by staff members .

“However, on Friday my son came home and told me that three Jack Russell terriers had managed to enter the playground on Friday morning and that many of the children were very scared. It bothers me because there are About two years ago, another dog made its way onto the playground and actually bit a child.

“With all this hot weather and a few more weeks before school ends for the summer, I think it’s unfair that children have to stay indoors during recess, rather than being able to go outside. This shouldn’t be dangerous for children to play at school.”

Hull City Council has confirmed that legal proceedings to evict travelers from St Thomas More Field are currently underway by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (EYRC), which owns the land.

Nic Harne, deputy director of neighborhoods and housing for Hull City Council, said: “St Thomas More Field is owned by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, who will be taking legal action to evict travelers from the site.

“Our dog sitters will also visit the site to offer advice and warnings. To report a dangerous dog, members of the public should call the police on 101 or contact our dog sitter service using the online form on shell. gov.uk.

“Hull City Council and the EYRC have worked together to better secure the St Thomas More ground. A site visit is planned next month to see what more can be done.”
