UPDATE: Council were not aware of Torquay dog attack

UPDATE 12.45pm:

COUNCIL has not been contacted about a dog attack in Torquay that sent a 19-year-old man and a woman to hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning. 

Fraser Coast Regional Council is urging anyone involved in a dog attack to contact council on 1300 794 929.  

"The call centre operates 24 hours a day seven days a week," Cr Robert Garland said. 

The pair suffered puncture wounds to their arms and hands after being attacked at Honiton St, Torquay about 12.30am Wednesday. 

The festive season is traditionally a busy time for the Council's Compliance Officers.

"People go on holidays and their pets become bored and wander or escape when the neighbour pops over to feed them; it is storm season and dogs who don't like thunder and lightning run away and don't forget the fireworks.

"Lots of dogs, and they don't have to be close to the fireworks show, don't like fireworks and can run away.

"Owners should secure their pets on nights when fireworks are scheduled, such as New Year's Eve and if there is a storm predicted.

"And, pets that are microchipped and registered can be reunited quickly with their owners which cuts stress on both pet and owner."

More information on looking after pets in storms is available on the Council website or .

The pair had puncture wounds to their arms and hands.
