    A travesty, what are these types of dogs doing unleashed! Horrors!! Makes u not want to go out! Stench, airborne diseases,
    Killings, high prices for food, very unnerving. A Canadian/Bajun here for a long stay, thinking of cutting it short.

    Even the dogs in Barbados getting ignorant /vicious and playing the arse. Has to be something in the air. One time dogs would have never attack a woman – true true true

    But here is the thing. The law provides for dogs to be on a lease and collar. Registered and Licenced. This dog owner must be charged by the Police.
    Barbados needs to enforce its Laws and stop pussyfooting…
    I can see a lot of jobs coming where these situations have to be policed and people punished. Lets clean up Barbados.

    there were two bull mastiffs off leash on gibbs beach a week ago, they ran at my grandson almost knocked him down, the owner allowed them to defecate on the beach, (no attempt to pick up after them either). when confronted about why they were off leash he scoffed ” why should they be”. my response was they almost knocked down my 3yr old grand he said Almost and walked away
