Forty-one-year-old Jane Greytorex entered her home only to find burglars stabbing her cocker spaniels apparently in attempts to silence them. The men wore masks and carried out their attack with a screwdriver. The cockers, Millie (11 months old) and Hardy (5 years old) managed to chase the intruders away. Fortunately, both only sustained minor injuries.
Mrs. Greytorex said she felt helpless watching the attack take place: “Millie and Hardy are the nicest, most good-natured dogs in the world, how anyone can stab animals like them is beyond me.” Both criminals remain at large. Anonymous tips can be called in at 0800 555 111.
