Share by emailShare by email

Any attack by a dog on a person is a criminal offence. This includes biting, bruising, significant scratching and any injury caused from falling over while being chased.

A dog behaving aggressively and causing someone to be in fear of being injured is also a criminal offence and should also be reported to the police.

How to report this

Please contact Nottinghamshire Police using the 101 non-emergency number or call 999 in an emergency if there is an immediate threat to someone’s safety.
