A man wants charges laid after he says two pit-bulls attacked his neighbor and Wheaten Terrier in New Westminster almost two weeks ago.
Speaking to Global News, Earl says chunks were ripped out of his dog Atticus’ neck while his neighbor Cam was walking the dog at Albert Crescent Park, near the Pattullo Bridge on August 11th.
Earl says they encountered a couple with two pit-bulls – both unleashed, adding one of the dogs just charged.
“His dog had my dog quite firmly by the neck and every time this owner tried to pull his dog back, you can see that both my neighbor who is not a small person and my dog were being jerked back.”
Earl says Cam sustained serious injuries, tendon damage.
His dog Atticus will recover.
“He’s got stitches down under his jaw.”
The owners of the unleashed dogs put their dogs in a car and left before police could arrive, while the owner of the victimized dog – was taken to an emergency veterinarian.
“Such a lack of responsibility.”
Animal Control Officer Margie Fox with the city says the incident is under investigation.
The dog has not been seized.
The city has pictures of the injuries sustained by the terrier and its owner but could not comment.
New West PD are asking witnesses who saw the incident on August 11th to come forward.
