Dog dies after savage attack in Milngavie

A MINIATURE Yorkshire terrier was savaged so badly by a Jack Russell in Lennox Park, Milngavie, that it had to be destroyed.

The owner of the tiny dog was horrified when her animal was grabbed by the neck and shaken violently in the attack last Friday at 2.40pm.

A man, who appeared to be with the white Jack Russell, shouted to the dog and separated the animals, but disappeared after the attack.

The middle aged Milngavie woman then took her dog to a nearby vet, but unfortunately the animal died from its injuries.

The Jack Russell owner is described as being 6ft tall with short fair hair, wearing a white top and light coloured denims.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them on 0141 532 4000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
