Oxfordshire catapult dog attack caught on CCTV

An intruder has been caught on CCTV firing a rock into the face of a dog with a catapult in Oxfordshire.

The man is seen fleeing when spotted by Chris Noys, estate manager at Elvenden Priory near Goring-on-Thames. He later sped off in a van with four other men.

Mr Noys said he knew something was wrong when his dogs started "going absolutely mental". He believes the attacker intended to steal the animal.

Thames Valley Police said it was investigating the attack on Tuesday.
