POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a puppy was attacked by another dog in Worcester.

At around 11am on Sunday, April 24, a white bull terrier approached the owners and attacked their five-month-old yellow Labrador puppy causing serious facial injuries that required surgery.

The attack, which occurred on Droitwich Road at the junction of Dilmore Lane in Fernhill Heath, left the puppy very distressed.

The dog, described as having a pure white coat with very white teeth and pink eyes was accompanied by a white man in his early 40s, of slim build. He was approximately 6 feet in height, with short fair hair and wearing smart casual clothing.

He is believed to have said that he was not the owner of the dog and had been walking it for his daughter.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have any information that can help identify the man described. Please call police on 101, quoting incident 128s of 25 April 2016.

Alternatively information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 111 or via their website.
