Man charged with allowing dogs to be dangerously out of control

A man has been charged with allowing dogs to be dangerously out of control.

On Sunday, armed police shot dead two pitbull-type dogs that attacked a man and woman in the street in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

In a statement, Greater Manchester Police said: "Daniel Hennessy, 39, of Curzon Road, Halliwell, Bolton, was this evening charged with two counts of allowing dogs to be dangerously out of control and one count of affray.

"He will appear before Bolton Magistrates' Court on Tuesday April 4."

Officers were called to Queen's Park in Chorley New Road after reports that five dogs were dangerously out of control.

Emergency services found a woman in her 40s who had been bitten on the hand and a man with bite injuries on his legs.

Greater Manchester Police said armed officers "humanely destroyed" two dogs and seized two more.

The fifth dog has yet to be located.
