Blind man's pet killed in attack by Staffordshire Bull Terrier in Chalfont St Peter
A BLIND man's pet greyhound was mauled to death after being attacked by a Staffordshire Bull Terrier in a Chalfont St Peter residential street.
The pensioner's dog was set upon in Pennington Road shortly after midday on Wednesday and died as a result of the attack.
The man was unhurt during the incident but it has left other dog owners in the road afraid to take their pets out for walks.
Resident Sue Donnelly said: "It's absolutely frightening. If this dog comes back, are we going to be safe in this road? None of us feel safe taking our dogs for a walk now.
"We're absolutely shocked. We can't actually believe this has happened."
Thames Valley Police said the owner of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier had been reported to the RSPCA but no criminal proceedings will be brought against them.
However officers from the neighbourhood policing team stepped up foot patrols in Pennington Road in a bid to reassure residents.
