Police have launched an inquiry into an attack believed to be by four American bulldogs which killed a dog and left a woman and child with minor injuries.
Notts Police officers were called at around 11am on Wednesday (August 9) to a report of a dog attack in Vicar Water Country Park, Clipstone.
The dog, a one-year-old Dachshund called Larry, died at the scene after it is believed he was attacked by four American Bulldogs.
A member of Larry’s family said: “We are heartbroken over what’s happened.
“Larry was loved and cherished by all who met him, especially our three-year-old daughter who referred to him as her best friend.”
The four American Bulldogs were seized under the Dangerous Dog Act and will be kept in a safe and secure environment by police while the investigation is conducted.
