Cumbria man arrested after dog attack

A CUMBRIA man has been arrested after a dog was attacked by a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, sustaining life-threatening injuries.

Police were called at around 12.15pm to Bridge Street, Carlisle, following a report that a Staffordshire Bull Terrier had attacked a smaller dog.

Police have arrested the owner of the first dog, a 21-year-old man from Workington, on suspicion of allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control in a public place.

The smaller dog, a Jack Russell, has sustained life threatening injuries.

PC Sarah Dodd said: “We take any reports of animal violence very seriously.

“This was a very distressing event for the woman who was taking her dog for a walk and the people who witnessed the incident. We will be investigating thoroughly to establish what has happened.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Cumbria Police on 101 and ask for PC Dodd, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
