Police investigate pet dog’s death after vicious mauling in Jacana

Police are investigating a pet cavoodle’s death in Melbourne after it was attacked by two dogs and their owner fled the scene.

Police are investigating a “beloved” pet’s vicious death in Melbourne’s north last week after it was mauled by two attacking dogs.

The attack happened about 5.45pm at the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail in Jacana last Thursday when two off-lead dogs approached “Kevy”, the 15-year-old cavoodle, and a man who had been pet-sitting him for family.

The two dogs proceeded attacked both of them, resulting in Kevy’s death and the 30-year-old man suffering injuries that later required stitches to his leg and upper body.

The man told police the owner of the two dogs attempted to hit them with a stick to stop the attack before fleeing the scene without assisting him or Kevy.

Family members have subsequently slammed the owner for running away and are now appealing to the public to help them track him down.

“We lost our beloved cavoodle, Kevy, to a violent dog attack in Broadmeadows which has resulted in a family member suffering serious injuries,” Kevy’s owner said.

“We are doing our best to identify the offending owner who did nothing and fled the scene with his two attacker dogs.”

They fear the man’s dogs may strike again unless something is done.

“My nephew‘s beloved cavoodle Kevy was mauled to death by two dogs last Thursday evening in Westmeadows and he himself was bitten badly, and the owner ran away,” the victim’s uncle said.

“Help us find and charge the irresponsible man and his ferocious dogs before it happens again to other innocent lives.”

The man who was with the two dogs was perceived to be Middle Eastern in appearance with a medium build, approximately 175cm tall, aged in his late 30s, with short dark hair. He was wearing a brown jacket.

The two dogs, one black and the other brown and white, were described as short and stocky with a medium build and coarse hair.

The family believes they could possibly be pit bulls.

Investigators have released an image of the owner’s stick that was left at the scene.

Police are looking for witnesses who were around the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail area at the time or anyone who can help identify the owner and his two dogs.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
