Greyhound owner to appear in court in connection with Carlton Colville dog attack

A 52-year-old man is to appear in court after his greyhounds were accused of killing another dog in Carlton Colville, near Lowestoft.

A police investigation was launched after the alleged incident on the cycle path to Castleton Avenue on January 21.

Witnesses reported seeing two of the man's greyhounds break free from their owner before attacking and killing a Cavalier King Charles spaniel called Lacie being walked by Paula Trail.

The greyhound owner, from Carlton Colville, has been reported for summons to court in connection with two offences under section three of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, which relates to a dog being dangerously out of control in a public place.

A police spokesman said the location and date of the hearing would be set in the coming days, although it was believed the case would be heard at Lowestoft Magistrates' Court.
