£1,500 pledged to find dog’s attacker

Daily Echo: £1,500 pledged to find dog’s attacker £1,500 pledged to find dog’s attacker

OUTRAGED animal lovers have pledged more than £1,500 to help find the thug who repeatedly stamped on a dog in the street.

Offers of cash in return for information leading to the arrest of the yob have poured in from people left appalled by the horrific act.

Three Daily Echo readers have stumped up £500 each, and a further pledge of £100 was received after we revealed the ferocity of the attack in a Hampshire town which left the dog crawling “like a spider”.

One of them, a 70-year-old woman from Hampshire, who wishes to be anonymous, said: “I just thought it was absolutely awful and I thought a bit more money as an incentive might just tempt someone to come forward to identify them.”

Police are still appealing for information after the suspect was seen by passers-by dragging the frightened dog across Nightingale Avenue in Eastleigh before stamping on it five times.

The man, thought to be in his 20s, was with a woman, a crying toddler 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.

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 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

And what exactly is a 'British accent'? London? Southern? Yorkshire? Lancastrian? Welsh? Scots? What?

It just means he didn't sound like he was Polish or Indian or whatever.

Stillness.....
It makes a massive difference!
The description of the yob was a bit vague, but of we had a breed of dog then people might know someone that matches the description with that dog!
Agreed?

Agreed. Sorry I was assuming that you had read last weeks item. As reported last week it was a Staffie type dog. Buggered if I know why Staffs always seem to pick this type of owner.

As I have previously stated, this was a vile act that should never be tolerated, my only concern is that a combined reward for £1500 has been offered and though commendable it may be, but how much do these people offer as reward when a non canine member of society is attacked when unable to defend themselves.
Just a thought…

Nothing wrong with a reward for finding the chav that did this. People have lawyers, legal aid and all that guff to turn to. Animals have nothing; not even a voice. If I founf the cretin I would let me 60kg puppy sort him out!

I heard it was a bull mastiff breed. Poor dog, it's a shame it didn't turn round a bite the Chav that did this disgusting act of cruelty on a clearly defenseless animal. I hope the people r found soon. I'd like to have thought people who know about this would come forward with a reward but good on the public who have offered a reward.
