A local resident has posted a series of notices around various Bournville open spaces as a warning to others about a dangerous Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
The notice claims that the dog attacked and badly injured a cat which later died. The incident is alleged to have happened in Woodlands Park where some of the notices have appeared. Notices were also posted on the Rowheath playing fields.
The notice appeared earlier this week but no dates have been given for the incident and there are no contact details. Cryptically the note says: ‘if the owner of this dog would like to come and apologise […] just return to the place where your dog killed our cat’.
The notice says that the dog ‘pounced’ on the cat badly injuring it. The dog’s female owner is said to have ‘ran out the park’ after the incident taking her dog with her.
The cat died a week later ‘in the arms of its owner’ who was then left with a £495 vet bill.
