The two Rottweiler dogs involved in the attack in Winton on Sunday 10 June have been euthanised by a vet today.

The owners of the dogs voluntarily surrendered them and have been co-operative in the process.

Southland District Council group manager environmental services Bruce Halligan said information is still being gathered on the attack on a 22-year-old Winton man, who suffered injuries.

Council is still to make a decision on whether further action will be taken under the Dog Control Act, and no decision will be made until statements from everyone involved have been received, Mr Halligan said.

Mr Halligan believes all statements should be gathered by the end of next week.
