Shire of Broome Rangers are calling for assistance from anyone who witnessed a serious dog attack at Entrance Point on the morning of Sunday 8 October.  

The male victim of the attack was swimming at Entrance Point between 10am and midday when he was attacked by the large mastiff dog and required hospital treatment for serious facial injuries.

Shire of Broome Manager Health, Emergency and Rangers, Ty Matson, said that Rangers were asking anyone who witnessed the attack to contact them to help with the investigation into the incident.

“Dog attacks are serious offences that carry with them substantial penalties, which is why we ask that owners ensure their dogs are fully contained at home, and kept on a leash at all times when in public, or under effective control when in off-leash areas,” Mr Matson said.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact Shire of Broome Rangers on (08) 9191 3456 or 0407 382 079.
