Reckless dog owner please come forward

Jenny Ocker, Sunnydale

Fish Hoek Lions Club were doing a beach clean-up on St James Walk to Muizenberg, on Saturday June 19.

As it was such a lovely day, the walkway was heaving with people.

A man’s Jack Russel terrier, which was not on a lead, ran through the legs of a colleague, causing her to fall on her face and knees, not only damaging her glasses but causing a nasty injury to her face. He did not provide his name or contact details or attempt to assist her in getting up and left. I berated him on the fact that his dog should have been on a lead

She spent hours at Constantiaberg emergency room, at great cost, having X-rays and treatment for a concussion.

As she only has a hospital plan, and her glasses are damaged, and will need replacing, she now has to bear these costs too.

Can the dog owner responsible for this please come forward and assist with the expenses?
