CRANLEY resident Christine Olsen is concerned about the safety of her neighbours' children after two bull mastiffs jumped her fence and attacked the chickens earlier this afternoon.

"It's school holidays and my neighbours have little girls.  Thank god they didn't go for the neighbour's yard.  They killed one of our chickens," she said.

"I was inside cooking tea and my husband heard the commotion.  As soon as he came out they took off."

Ms Olsen said the dogs ran off into the escarpment next to her Bedwell St residency.

"We called the council and they're going to investigate."

"They're dangerous dogs and they don't belong on the loose."

She said she had seen them roaming the neighbourhood before.
