  • Friday 01 February 2019

A serious dog attack occurred near Stumers Creek in Coolum on Christmas Day and council is asking anyone who may have witnessed the attack to help with the investigation.

A Jack Russell Terrier was attacked on the beach by two other dogs, described as black English Staffordshires with distinctive harnesses and collars.

Council is investigating the attack, but the identity of the dogs and the people responsible for them at the time of the attack remains unknown.

Division 9 Councillor Steve Robinson appealed to the community to come forward with any information that may help.

“The injured dog has endured several operations and thankfully has now returned home,” Cr Robinson said.

“The incident was extremely distressing for the dog’s owner, and it’s important that we identify the attacking dogs.

“If anyone has information that could help with the investigation I urge you to contact council.

“Keeping our community safe is a top priority, and we need to ensure that any dogs involved in an attack can be properly assessed.”

If you have any information that may help, please contact council on 5475 7272.
