Second dog in a week killed in cliff fall on Brean Down


A 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).

Pete 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.

Mr 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."

He added: "We always advise dog owners to keep their pets well away from cliff edges and to keep them on a lead if possible."

Burnham-On-Sea.com was first to report a week ago how a Staffordshire Bull Terrier had been killed on the Down on May 30th, prompting a safety warning.
