dog in a week killed in cliff fall on Brean Down
beach warden has repeated his warning for dog owners to keep their
pets on leads while walking on Brean Down after the death of a
second animal in just a week on Sunday (June 7th).
Williams, pictured, was called to the southern side of the Down
on Sunday afternoon when the pet, believed to be a black Scottie,
plunged down the cliffs.
Williams told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The
dog was chasing a goat when it fell over the edge, close to where
a Staffordshire Bull Terrier also fell to its death last weekend.
Its owners were very shocked."
added: "We always advise dog owners to keep their pets well
away from cliff edges and to keep them on a lead if possible."
