Son Richard Austin told the Standard: “Every time my mom closes her eyes, she just keeps seeing the dog bounding towards her.
“I just want those people found and prosecuted. The main thing is for leaving her there, leaving a frail old lady pouring with blood and her dog ripped to pieces.
“If the dog had knocked her and Benjy over, it could have been a lot worse and killed him easily as he’s so small and can’t withstand anything like that.
“It will be a long recovery for the pair of them and will take a long time for them to get over it. What despicable people would do that?”Well...
Police believe the men were white, possibly Eastern European, with one wearing a black t-shirt and the other a green t-shirt, while the dog was white with a brown patch on one eye.The 'Eastern European' bit is, for once, irrelevant. Plenty of home-grown scum do the same.
