REDDING, CONN. -- Where is McGruff the Crime Dog when you need him?
As a vehicle for the promotion of crime awareness and personal safety, the anthropomorphic canine might be able to lend a paw to Mike Deluca, the Redding Police Department’s animal control officer.
Deluca is looking into an incident at Topstone Park around 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, police said in a Facebook post.
According to police, an unidentified couple -- a man and woman in their 30’s -- were walking four dogs at the park when one of the pooches bit the other.
The dogs in the biting were described as pit bulls, one black and the other gray. One of the other two dogs they were walking was described only as "spotted."
Police said there were no "serious" injuries involved.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to call Redding police at (203)-938-3400.
The on-duty officer will forward the information to Deluca, police said.
Topstone is a forested 280-acre park at 72 Topstone Road off Route 7, with nature trails and a lake that is used for swimming and kayaking.
