The Los Alamos Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating two dogs that attacked and killed a smaller dog at a home on Acoma Lane Wednesday.
The attack happened at 12:15 p.m., according to a witness.
“…A witness observed (two) large dogs, one brown and the other black, come into the yard where a smaller dog was,” according to police spokesman Commander Preston Ballew. “The (two) large dogs killed the smaller dog and left the area.”
The witness was unable to identify the breeds of the dogs, Ballew said. 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.
