POLICE are appealing for information after a dog was injured in Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury.
On Saturday, July 2 at 4pm a young woman was walking her dog on a lead when it was approached by two dogs described as a white pit bull and a black German shepherd.
The German shepherd pinned down the victim’s dog and although she was able to get it free, she later found her dog had suffered a small puncture wound to its neck.
One of the owners is described as a white man aged in his late 30s to early 40s, 6ft tall, with short fair hair. He had tattoos on his upper arms and was wearing a white t-shirt and grey and blue shorts.
The second is described as a white woman aged in her late 30s to early 40s, about 5ft 4in tall, of slim build with shoulder length dark hair. She was wearing a light coloured t-shirt and knee-length shorts.
PC Ian Pedliham from Salisbury Police said: “There will have been many other people in the park at the time and they may have heard an argument between the owners or have information to help with our inquiries.
“We are also aware that a couple matching these descriptions were seen in Queen Elizabeth Gardens the week before this incident occurred and believe that they may use the park frequently to walk their dogs. I’d like to ask them to make contact with police in order for us to resolve the situation.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Pedliham of the Salisbury City Centre Neighbourhood Policing Team on 0845 4087000 or Crimestoppers 0800 555111.
