Yorkshire Terrier loses leg after being ‘deliberately’ run over


A Yorkshire Terrier hit by a car in Leighton Buzzard last week has had its leg amputated.

The collision took place at a zebra crossing on West Street, not far from Waitrose, at around 8.30am on Wednesday, July 1.

The Leighton Buzzard Observer previously reported the eye-witness account of the woman who rescued the dog. She was convinced that the driver who hit the animal had done so deliberately.

On Friday, the owner posted on Facebook: “To the person who deliberately ran over the Yorkshire terrier dog at 08:30 yesterday morning, at the canal crossing, he’s had his leg amputated today, £1,000 bill just for the operation never mind aftercare....

“Just hoping the police find the CCTV evidence and two witnesses’ evidence will put in you court.”

The matter has since been referred to Beds Police. Anyone with information contact 101.
