Cops face quiz after dog kills
A MAN has died after being attacked by a dog which had been returned to its owner despite concerns that it was dangerous.
Police said that the 52-year-old man, who has not been named, was out walking with his Yorkshire terrier when he was attacked by another dog in the Sheepbridge area of Huddersfield on Monday. He died later in hospital.
The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission because the dog involved in the attack was seized by officers earlier this month but returned to its owner after it was determined that it was not a banned breed.
A 29-year-old man, the owner of the dog, was arrested in connection with the incident and later released on bail pending further inquiries.
