A witness appeal has been launched by Thames Valley Police after a dog attacked another dog in Loudwater, High Wycombe.
At 2.15pm, on Sunday 3rd December 2015, a 60 year old man was walking his dog in The Mead, Kingswood Avenue when he saw a black Staffordshire bull terrier circling a car in the nearby car park.
He put his own dog, a small terrier, on a lead and picked it up when the staffy approached and became aggressive. The staffy jumped up at the man and attacked his dog causing injuries which needed veterinary treatment.
PC Francesca Keen, from the reactive team at High Wycombe, said: ‘We would like to speak to the owner of the staffy as it was out of control in a public place and there could have been more serious consequences.
We believe that the owner is a white man in his forties, 5’ 7” tall and large build.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information which would help us to identify the owner of the offending dog should call the Thames Valley Police 24-hour enquiry desk on 101.‘
If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
