Watch as rogue dog chases alarmed couple down street

A dog on the loose was caught on camera chasing after residents on a street in Bordesley Green.

The footage shows the canine chasing after the residents across Botha Road in Bordesley Green on September 15 just before 8pm.

Captured on CCTV, residents say it is not the first time the animal has got loose and chased pedestrians.

The resident who captured the scary moment, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “It’s been happening since September 10. The dog came outside my house and it started barking at us.

“The dog is often left in the front garden unsecure and then the dog runs after people. So far the dog has nearly been hit by two cars and chased after five or six residents.”

The footage shows two people running down the road before the dog, seemingly chasing them, runs after. A second couple then take control of the animal before, at the end of the footage, it breaks free and runs off again.
“We have phoned the police three times and once the dog warden.

“We live with young kids in the house too which is dangerous. If the dogs are not trained properly they could always be a hazard especially if there are children – and could attack someone and bite someone.”

The resident has reported the issue to the police who have referred them to the dog warden team, part of the Birmingham City Council.

A spokesperson from Birmingham City Council told BirminghamLive: “We are aware of dog welfare issues reported by residents in Botha Road, Bordesley Green, which our Animal Welfare team are investigating. However, please note complaints made under the Dangerous Dogs Act are handled by the police.”
