The dog owner is charged with violating the law on keeping dogs after a child died in Brumunddal this weekend as a result of an attack by two dogs.

The Innlandet Police District stated that the two dogs, which have now been killed, were a Rottweiler and a Golden Retriever. The dogs were killed on Saturday afternoon.

The police were notified of the attack a little after noon on Saturday.

The dog owner is charged under section 28 of the Dog Act, which deals with punishment for a dog owner who intentionally or negligently fails to prevent the dog from unlawfully attacking or injuring a person.

The penalty under this section is a fine or imprisonment for up to six months.

The police continue to clarify the circumstances surrounding the incident. Forensic scientists investigated the scene on Saturday.

  1. There is no excuse for keeping dangerous breeds of attack dogs like Rottweilers – I assume the Golden Retriever just went along with it – and pit bulls, and the owner should be charged as a murderer.

    6 months, so … if convicted … he can go out and buy more attack dogs?

    The “owner” is a menace to society … and other children.

    Attack dogs and other dangerous “pets” should be outlawed!

    REAL stupid, Norway … not that the States aren’t so, about this, as well.
