Reward to hunt down dog attacker

First published in News

PET lover left horrified by a sickening attack on a family dog has put up a £500 reward for information that leads to finding the thug responsible.

The Daily Echo reader came forward after reading that a mindless brute repeatedly stamped on a dog’s head before the dog crawled away “like a spider” in a busy Hampshire town.

The 67-year-old woman from Hampshire, who does not want to be named, has offered the reward to anyone who can give information to police about the crime which leads to a conviction.

She said: “It was with absolute horror I read the article about the poor dog.

With this in mind I would like to offer a reward for the apprehension of this thug.

“It takes a different species to do this to a poor animal.

“Someone in Eastleigh must know who committed this vile crime and he must be brought to justice.”

Police are appealing for information after the thug was seen by passers-by dragging the frightened dog across Nightingale Avenue in Eastleigh.

The man, thought to be in his twenties, was with a woman, a toddler, who was crying and a baby in a pushchair.

When the man, who is about 5ft 5in with olive skin and very dark eyebrows and hair and spoke with a British accent, reached the pavement, he stopped and savagely stamped on the dog’s head at least five times.

An eyewitness said the dog – thought to be a white pitbull mastiff cross – was booted so hard “it collapsed like a lump of meat on the floor” and then was described as “trying to walk like a spider.”

One woman tried to stop the cruelty and followed the family across Sparrow Square but lost them when they went down a track towards Woodpecker Way on the Nightingale Estate.

The man wore a beige jacket and jeans. The woman was about 5ft 1in and very slim.

She had her hair tied back tightly and was wearing a purple top with jeans.

The incident happened on Friday, July 13.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.

The sad fact is I bet the dog wags its tail when it sees its owner because that's what they do ! Other than crimes against children little disgusts me more than doing this to a defencless animal, as said above a town centre with numerous CCTV Cameras should be able to detect this low life and in the first instance re-home the dog..then the kids because if he is capable of this then the potential exists that he will harm the children.

Except Nightingale Avenue isn't anywhere near the town centre,its near Flemming park.....no cctv around there that I'm aware of, which means this scum bag will probably never get caught

Amoeba scum that deserve the exact same treatment. I hope they contract some vile disease and suffer for the rest of their useless pointless lives. People like this start on animals and move on to children. Well done that lady for putting up a reward. Sadly, people are moved by money but it might help someone come forward.

Does make me laugh, just because you would stand by and do nothing George you assume the rest of us would do the same. Just shows what sort of a man you are, just a daily echo commenting geek. I've been a veggie all my life and very much involved in animal rights so don't tell me what sort of a hardman I would or wouldn't be when it comes to protecting animals.

You are all disgusting. You reduce a debate about a serious issue to the gutter. Learn some manners and respect for each other and debate the issues. Taking chunks out of each other with feeble insults makes you all no better than the "man" who abused the dog.

unfortunately there is not so much legal protection for animals as there is kids, the rspca seems more interested in property than animals, if caught he'll probablt be banned from keeping pets for a few years more justice would be done if one of the above caught him!
