Appeal for driver after dog dies
AN APPEAL has been made for a motorist who fatally injured a dog in St Neots last week to come forward.
The dog, a white Staffordshire bull terrier, was hit by a vehicle passing by the Common on the B1041 and left in the road.
Gavin Childs-Brown was driving home in the car behind at around 5.30pm when he saw the dog, and stopped to try to help.
He said: “I noticed the dog in the road – you couldn’t miss it. She was still alive, and the car’s bumper had been left by the side of the road as well.
“There was a person across the road who said he had seen the collision, and he said it was the car in front of me.”

“Firstly, I just hope that the person who did it realises that it is the law to stop, and secondly, I hope they come forward.
“I understand they might be in shock, but if it had been me I would have got to the end of the road and turned back.
“It probably wasn’t the driver’s fault, but I would have come back to say sorry at least. But the driver left it for someone else to sort out.”
