Guernsey Police have said they are no longer looking for anybody in relation to a reported attack on a dog on 11 December.
Police investigated after the dog lost an eye. It was alleged it had been hit repeatedly with a hammer.
Det Insp Richard Medhurst said the dog's owner had withdrawn her allegations.
They also looked into homophobic graffiti sprayed on to the owner's van and shed door.
Det Insp Medhurst said she had asked for "all donations offered by sympathisers to be returned".How very strange...
Police have begun investigating other possible causes for the dog's injuries, including an animal attack or road accident.Aren't they ruling out one possible line of enquiry rather too soon?
