    More information has been released about a dog attack that left one dog dead Wednesday on Acoma Lane.

    The Los Alamos Police Department released a photo Monday of two dogs barking at another dog at taken by a witness.

    The dogs in question are the two dogs outside of a fence.

    “The picture was taken by a witness as these dogs roamed near the area where the smaller dog was killed and are believed to be the culprits,” said Commander Preston Ballew.

    If anyone has any information that can help identify the owner or location of these dogs, call LAPD at 662-8222.

    The attack happened at 12:15 p.m. Friday afternoon.

    The person who witnessed the attack was unable to identify the breeds of the dogs, Ballew said.

    “…A witness observed (two) large dogs, one brown and the other black, come into the yard where a smaller dog was,” according to Ballew. “The (two) large dogs killed the smaller dog and left the area.”

    Police and animal control officers searched the area to locate the dogs but were unsuccessful.

    If anyone knows the location or owners of these dogs, they are asked to contact the LAPD at 662-8222.

    Officers are asking the public to use caution. Police do not know if the dogs could be aggressive to humans, Ballew said.

    CATS
     
    Mr. Whiskers—A big tabby cat that is about 4 years old. Changes are a bit stressful for him, so he will likely need a little bit of time to adjust to his new home. He can be independent, but he’s also very sweet and likes to snuggle when he’s in the mood! He is okay with mellow cats, but other dominant males sometimes bother him.
    Lemon—A sweet older cat that was left at the front door of the shelter with no information or history. Lemon is currently in foster care receiving treatment for diabetes; her foster home reports that they call her Sugar, since she’s so sweet! When Lemon is feeling better, she’ll be looking for a mellow home that is understanding of the needs of a diabetic cat.
