Appeal After Vicious Dog Attack in Scarborough

Appeal After Vicious Dog Attack in Scarborough

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 2:42pm 29th October 2019.

Scarborough Borough Council is appealing for information in relation to a vicious dog on dog attack that took place outside Barrowcliff School in Scarborough at 3.10pm on Saturday 26 October.

The council’s Dog Warden is investigating the reported attack on a small Lhasa Apso dog, which at the time was on a lead and being walked by its 75 year old female owner.

The offending dog is described as a large male Bull Mastiff type, white in colour, with some black patches around its back and on its ear. It was wearing a silver link chain around its neck.

This dog appeared to be unaccompanied at the time of its unprovoked attack on the Lhasa Apso, which suffered severe injuries to its throat.

The offending dog ran off along Barrowcliff Road as a member of the public approached to give assistance to the owner of the Lhasa Apso, who was traumatised at the time.

Despite emergency surgery at a local vet's practice, the dog could not be saved.

The council is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information regarding the white Bull Mastiff dog, to get in touch with the Dog Warden service at the earliest opportunity by calling 01723 232323 or emailing dog.warden@scarborough.gov.uk
