Dog walker and pet attacked by another dog

By Rebecca King | Telford | Crime | Published:

A dog walker and his pet were attacked by a loose dog.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the pair were attacked in Ketley Dingle, in Ketley, Telford at about 7pm on May 13.

The man was walking in the area when a brown dog with a white coat, described as a Staffordshire or Pit Bull terrier type animal ran at them.

The victim was able to pick up his own dog, a young springer spaniel, in time to stop it being bitten but the other animal, which the man described as very aggressive, continued to jump up at him.

Officers said it left both the man and the animal to become very distressed.

Police want to speak with the owners of the animal to make sure appropriate steps are taken to keep it under control and stop anyone else being placed at risk of injury, especially as the area is popular with young children.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information that could help the police identify the dog and its owner should call Malinsgate Police Station.

Ring 101 quoting reference 688s of May 13.
