Be insured if your best friend likes your tyres even more!!

Dogs are often referred to as “a man’s best friend”. But what if your best friend appears to have an appetite for tyres? We have found a very interesting story from Wellington New Zeeland:

“An aggressive dog that attacked and punctured the tyres of police vehicles four times in the New Zealand city of Auckland was finally captured, officials said Sunday.

A patrol sergeant had an encounter with a large black dog which attacked his vehicle and punctured the tyre, police reported.

After retreating and repairing the tyre, the sergeant returned and the dog attacked again, making a second puncture with its teeth.

Another sergeant who came to help then also had his tyre attacked and punctured, as did that of an animal control officer’s vehicle which came to assist.

The dog escaped but officers later tracked it down and took it into custody, pending a decision on its future.

In South Africa the purchase of tyre insurance is usually brought about by the frustrations from potholes and poor road conditions. We have discussed this in detail on several blog posts and would like to share these with our readers.
