Officials have called for the revision of the Dangerous Dogs Act after the recent death of a lady in London caused by a dog living in the same house.

The lady had been mauled to death by a dog believed to be a ‘Belgian Mastive’. The dog was killed by the police at the house where Barbara Williams lodged. Since her death, MP’s have asked that the list include the Mastiff along with the pit bull, Fila Brasiliero, Japanese Tosa and Dogo Argentina and any crosses.

Kit Malthouse, deputy mayor of London, said “We need some changes in the law. We want stiffer penalties, extension to private land and more discretion for police to deal with dogs more quickly”.

More than 1,700 dangerous dogs have been taken by the police in London alone during 2010 and the ambulance service registered more than 700 ambulance call outs to dog attack related injuries.
