'Loose Dangerous Dog' Killed In Guernsey

A 'loose dangerous dog' has been shot by firearms officers in Guernsey after it attacked members of the public and other dogs near a children's playground.

Armed officers were sent out just before midday to deal with the dog at Saumarez Park, which was put down on advice from the States vet to prevent further risk and harm.

Police are investigating what happened and have paid tribute to those who restrained the Staffordshire Bull Terrier while emergency services were en-route to prevent further injury.
