North Wales Police have managed to trace the owner of a dog police deliberately killed.
Chief Superintendent Sacha Hatchett said: “We have now traced the owner of the trail hound.
“The owner, who is from outside the North Wales area and who does not want to be named, is devastated at the news, but understands that officers had a very difficult decision to make at the time.
“He said he appreciates that given the risk to human life, the officers made the correct decision.
“He is supportive of the police as had there been a serious accident he said he could not have lived with himself.”
