I HAVE JUST RECEIVED A REPLY FROM THE BY LAWS OFFICER REGARDING THE ALLEGED ATTACK. THEY HAVE NOT PROVIDED "EVIDENCE" STATING THAT A BY LAWS OFFICER WITNESSED THE BODILY HARM & TIGER HAS BEEN DEEMED "A DANGEROUS DOG". THE OWNER OF THE "ALEDGED VICTIM" IS A BUNDABERG CITY COUNCIL EMPLOYEE, A WORK COLLEAGUE AND BUDDY OF THE BY LAW'S OFFICER. THE OWNER OF THE VICTIM HAS THREATENED TO BAIT MY DOG ON SEVERAL OCCASSIONS, AND THAT HE IS OUT TO GET HIM. I AM OF THE OPINION THAT THE BY LAWS OFFICER AND THE ALEDGED VICTIMS OWNER HAVE COLUDED IN THIS ALLEGATION. I INTEND TO DISPUTE THIS DECISION. PLEASE ADVISE
