Police are investigating an incident where a dog was attacked and killed by another dog in a south Bristol park while the owners looked on in horror.
Officers are asking for help to identify a man on a mobility scooter believed to be the owner of the violent animal.Just the sort of person who should own a powerful and dangerous animal!
The man on a mobility scooter is believed to be the owner of two dogs - including the dangerous dog - who were both being allowed to roam freely without a lead.
After the attack, the man refused to give his details to the couple and drove away through the park, leaving through the exit to Headley Lane and Hartcliffe Way and turning left into Novers Lane.
The man is described as white, in his 50s or 60s, around 5"8, heavily built with receding lightly coloured hair.
He was wearing grey jogging bottoms and a dirty looking hat and his mobility scooter had a light and a weatherproof hood.
It is believed the man had been drinking.Shouldn't be hard to identify. And clearly, even he realised this...
The owner of a large American bulldog which killed a poodle in a Bristol park has come forward, after the police appealed for information about the incident.
Officers said a man voluntarily presented himself to a police station after the Bristol Post revealed how the dog’s owner fled on a mobility scooter after the attack on Saturday night.Aha, the American bulldog, rapidly taking over from the Staffie-cross as the weapon of choice.
But what the hell is it with people who can't walk getting a pet that needs regular exercise?
QC Patricia Lynch sentenced Blackwell, who drives a mobility scooter, to a six month suspended sentence, a 30-day rehabilitation requirement to assist with her welfare and made an order for compensation.Her welfare shouldn't be the bloody concern here!
Patricia Lynch said: "This was shocking and thoroughly disgraceful behaviour.
"The dogs should not have been off the lead and it was irresponsible to take them off the lead.
"I will make it perfectly clear I was very firmly of the view that you were not a fit and proper person to look after dogs."Make whatever you like clear, but it doesn't seem to work that way?
Blackwell will maintain the custody of JD./facepalm
