Guernsey woman withdraws dog attack allegations

Guernsey Police have said they are no longer looking for anybody in relation to a reported attack on a dog on 11 December.

Police investigated after the dog lost an eye. It was alleged it had been hit repeatedly with a hammer.

Det Insp Richard Medhurst said the dog's owner had withdrawn her allegations.

They also looked into homophobic graffiti sprayed on to the owner's van and shed door.

Det Insp Medhurst said she had asked for "all donations offered by sympathisers to be returned".

He said there was "no evidence at all" that the owner had injured the dog and the animal was in police care - with the owner's agreement - and receiving veterinary treatment.

Police have begun investigating other possible causes for the dog's injuries, including an animal attack or road accident.
