Police in Bushey are currently investigating an incident in Bushey which two dogs are reported to have been ‘dangerously out of control’.
They said that incident occurred in Highwood Avenue, at around 7am on Wednesday 18 November last week.
It was reported that two ‘greyhound type’ dogs ran from a green space and into a garden, where they began attacking a cat. The dogs were not on leads.
