Police officers are appealing for information after a complaint that three young girl’s kicked a man’s dog in Ramsgate and then ran off.
A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police was called at 10.45am on Sunday, February 9 to reports a dog had been kicked near Charlotte Court in Ramsgate. The dog’s owner reported three girls aged between 10 and 12 had kicked his dog before running off.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/26618/20.

High time blame was allocated fairly and squarely where it lies; with the parents. For starters, parents should be prosecuted for crimes committed by their offspring if they are below the age of criminal responsibility. As for the people on Facebook who said of these children: “I’d kick their heads in if they touched my dog”, I’m afraid you are just as much part of the problem as these scumbags’ parents. If children see or hear adults using threatening and abusive language they they learn that this is grown-up behaviour. It isn’t. It’s pathetic schoolyard posturing.
I don’t think it’s fair to call children of 10 or so “Scumbags”. They have been badly brought up- as Peter Binding says, their upbringing in these early years is the parents’ responsibility. And what sort of person would even think of kicking a child’s head in for any misbehaviour? And if you wouldn’t do it , then why say it?
Perhaps the girls kicked the dog because it was attacking them?
We are rather jumping to conclusions.
Kids so lovely theses days don’t know why bothering to defend them don’t matter what age I agree scum bags
I believe in what Peter says, the Blame should lie with the parents.. children should be taught right from wrong from an early age, taught to respect others so they can get respect in return. And if someone kicked my dog I would have phoned the police and followed to the best of ability the offender and guided the police to them. Or taken a photo. Bring in night school for parents to be taught how to respect themselves so they can pass it on to their children.
