Police in Cheltenham are appealing for information about a dog walker after a Lurcher was attacked by two Staffordshire Bull Terriers last week.
The incident took place at Caernarvon Park between 7am and 8am last Saturday (11 September) after an unknown man's Staffies attacked a Lurcher called Oakley causing injuries which required veterinary treatment.
Oakley's owner stated that a black male and tan female Staffie, which appeared to be called Nala, were off their leads at the time of the attack. They ran over towards Oakley before growling and attacking him causing four wounds.
One of the wounds was severe as it was very close to the jugular vein in the neck and required quite significant treatment.
The owner of the Staffies was asked for his details but told the caller that he would come back with the details but never returned.
He was described as being a white man of medium to athletic build who was between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall. He was believed to be in his 30s or 40s and had short dark hair with facial stubble.
Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team are asking for the owner of the Staffies to come forward as well as anyone who was in the park at the time and saw what happened.
