Should dogs be banned from Bunnings after fatal attack?
An unrestrained dog has attacked and killed a smaller dog at a Bunnings store in Brisbane on Sunday.
The fatal attack, witnessed by many horrified shoppers has prompted some to call for a change to Bunning's dog policy.
While Bunnings does allow dogs into stores, company policy stipulates the animals must be “friendly” and need to be secured safely in a vehicle or trolley, or on a lead and wearing a muzzle, or being carried.
Thousands of social media users are now questioning why dogs, other than assistance or guide animals, are allowed in stores.
Unfortunately not all dog owners can be relied upon to do the right thing. My 5yr old was almost bitten in Bunnings as a toddler because the owner wouldn’t restrain their dog & insisted ‘it was totally safe’. Didn’t like it so much when I booted it in the guts.— Gillian Fennell (@stationmum101) February 2, 2021
