Toddler Hospitalized After XL Bully Dog Attack in Greenwich

XL Bully Owner Charged as Ban Looms

In a distressing incident, a toddler was urgently taken to the hospital after being attacked by a dog suspected to be an XL Bully. The shocking event occurred at 10:10 am yesterday in Catherine Grove, Greenwich, London.

Swift Medical Attention

The 20-month-old child suffered injuries from the out-of-control dog but, fortunately, their condition was assessed as not life-threatening after prompt medical evaluation at the hospital.

Dog Owner Identified

Law enforcement officers swiftly located the dog, believed to be an XL Bully, and its owner. A police spokesperson provided details: “On Tuesday, October 3, Thomas Ackah, of Old Kent Road, SE1, was charged with being in charge of a dangerously out of control dog. He is due to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 3 October. The dog was reported to be an XL Bully, however further tests are required to confirm this.”

Ban on XL Bully Dogs

This incident coincides with the recent announcement by Rishi Sunak that XL Bully dogs will be banned by the end of the year in an effort to curb violent attacks. The decision to implement this ban under the Dangerous Dogs Act follows a series of alarming attacks by XL Bully dogs, some of which targeted children. Tragically, on September 14, one man, Ian Price, 52, lost his life while reportedly protecting his elderly mother from an attack by one of these aggressive dogs in Stonall, Staffordshire.

The impending ban has ignited debates within the community, with some supporting the prohibition of these powerful dogs, while others argue that responsible ownership, rather than the animals themselves, should be the focus of prevention efforts.
