Cause of in­jury to dog be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by the po­lice

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS -

Al­bany po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of a dog at­tack yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Jeff Daniels said po­lice were alerted to the inci- dent and ex­am­ined the yard. “We had a re­port from a dog owner who said their five-year-old Dober­man re­ceived a large in­ci­sion down its midriff,” he said.

“We have gone to the yard and con­ducted thor­ough ex­am­i­na­tions but at this stage we are un­able to de­ter­mine where and if the in­jury took place or how it hap­pened.”

Sen. Const. Daniels said there was no di­rect ev­i­dence of an­i­mal cru­elty. “We have to es­tab­lish if an of­fence has a oc­curred, it’s pos­si­ble the dog has in­jured it­self and per­haps less likely that some­one has in­flicted the in­jury.

“As to how, we have noth­ing to es­tab­lish its cause.”

The dog was taken to a vet.
