A man has been charged by police in connection with an incident where a dog died after being attacked by three dogs on an Edinburgh beach.

The vet said Sky died from a massive heart attack due to the trauma.

A 50-year-old man has been reported to the procurator fiscal. It is understood his dogs,who attacked, have been rehomed separately.

He is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on 10 November.

  1. I am sad and furious all at the same time. Owners of large breed dogs who don’t leash them, train them, control them are a dangerous menace to other people as well as to small dogs. That this little beloved Chihuahua had to die so horrifically because of that man’s ghastly dog is a reason to put the owner of that killer dog behind bars. In America, people carry firearms, pepper spray, knives for protection. I am sorry that the owner of the now deceased Chihuahua didn’t have a loaded gun to shoot and kill that guy’s beast.

    I am furious because it happens here too and the large dogs always win. To the heartbreak and PTSD of the owner of a small dog.

    If one more person tries to tell me how good their pitbulls are, I will go OFF on them! They might be fine with their own families, but anyone else including dogs they don’t know, are OTHER, and are likely to be severely hurt.
