Mayor of Kingston Dr. Angela Brown Burke is threatening to sue the owner of a pair of vicious dogs that attacked and mauled a child in Manor Park, St. Andrew earlier this year.
The child’s mother Aleiya Chin, said her son Joshua suffered physically and emotionally as a result of the incident, which happened in March of this year.
Dr. Brown Burke, says the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation, KSAC, is seeking legal advice on what action to take against the owner of the dogs.
The Mayor says there’ve been problems with those types of dogs in the past and regulations are needed to hold their owners accountable.
She says she is not ruling out the implementation of regulations which bar persons from owning these dangerous dogs.
Dr. Brown Burke says the KSAC is also planning to assist Joshua’s mother with his medical expenses.
