Police are appealing for witnesses after a dog was attacked by another dog in Kesgrave.
The incident took place last night, Wednesday 14th July, at some point between 10.50pm and 11.05pm on Main Road, between Dr Watsons Lane and the Ropes Drive roundabout.
A man was out walking his dog, a beagle, when another dog ran towards him and attacked it. The beagle sustained injuries to its chest before its owner was able to separate the animals.
The dog is believed to be of bull breed – possibly a Staffordshire bull or English mastiff-cross – and is described as a light brown, brindle-coat dog with a brown leather collar and slip lead.
Officers would like to trace the owner of this dog and speak to her about this incident. She is described as white, approximately 5ft 5ins in height, aged in her late 40s to early 50s, with light brown hair and blonde highlights, which was pulled back to around chin-length. She wore navy cotton trousers, a grey long-sleeved top and a blue sleeveless body warmer.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the South Safer Neighbourhood Team at Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference 38282/21.
