West Midlands Police are investigating a dog attack which left one dog dead and its 73 year old owner injured.
The attack happened between 6 – 7 am on Friday 16th October on the playing fields in Manor Farm Park, Northfield.
Police were called just after 7am yesterday morning to a report of a dog attack.
A police spokeswoman said: “The victim’s dog was seriously injured during the attack and has since died. The 73 year-old victim was knocked over during the incident and bumped her head.”
The victim was later admitted to hospital, having suffered a heart attack, where her condition is described as stable.
Investigating officers are reviewing CCTV as part of their enquiries.
The Animal House Rescue said that the victim’s dog, a greyhound, was attacked by a “bull breed type, white with tan patches/flecks. The bull breed was being walked by a male and was also accompanied by an Akita which we believe was not involved in the attack.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
