Man charged after dog killed at Pill, Newport

A man has been charged under the Dangerous Dogs Act after two dogs attacked and killed a pet terrier and injured its owner.

The attack happened near the Waterloo Hotel in Pill, Newport, on Saturday night.

The 31-year-old man has been charged with not being in control of a dangerous dog in a public place and causing injury.

He has been bailed to appear before Newport magistrates on 13 October.

A 30-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident has been released on police bail.

Gwent Police said a woman was walking her two Yorkshire terriers at Alexandra Road when two dogs attacked her dogs.

As she tried to stop the attack, in which one of her dogs died, she was bitten on her arm.

She was taken to hospital and received treatment but has since returned home.
