Appeal after dog attacked by another dog at a Nottinghamshire country park

Police are seeking the public’s help after a dog was attacked by another dog.

Officers are investigating the circumstances and want to trace the owner of the offending dog, believed to be a Weimaraner, which wasn’t on a lead and bit the other dog, a Hungarian Vizsla, on her side leaving her needing three stitches.

The attack happened on Gedling Country Park, Spring Lane, Lambley, at around 9am on Tuesday (7 March 2023).

The owner of the offending dog is described as a white man, about 5ft 8ins tall, of slim to medium build and aged in his late 40s to early 50s. He was wearing a fluorescent orange jacket and a dark-coloured bobble hat.

Police Constable Annie Bloomfield, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an extremely alarming and distressing incident for the injured dog’s owner.
