Calne police seek owners of cat-killing dog
Police would like to contact the owners of a black Staffordshire bull terrier which attacked and fatally injured an elderly woman’s cat in Honey Mead, Calne, around noon on Friday September 12.
The dog, described as small, black and solid-looking, jumped over the woman’s 3ft picket fence to grab the cat, which was resting on a mobility scooter in the front garden.
It was off the lead and was with three white men in their early 20s at the time, who kicked the dog until it let go of the cat.
One was wearing a red T-shirt with a key-ring on his jeans and another was wearing a ribbed or striped T-shirt.
After the cat was found it was taken to the vet and was given overnight treatment, but it had to be put down.
Police would like to speak to the three men, anyone who knows the dog, or anyone who witnessed the incident. To get in touch call 101 and ask for PCSO Shelley Gray.
