CALGARY- Officers are trying to track down the owner of two dogs who killed a poodle in northeast Calgary.

Around 9:30 on Saturday morning, a woman was walking her dog along Templehill Drive when she crossed paths with another woman walking two dogs, which are described as being similar to pit bulls.

That’s when one of the dogs grabbed the poodle, bit and shook it. A neighbour rushed to help, but the poodle died of its injuries a short time later.

Animal and Bylaw Officers are now looking for the owner of the dogs, who is described as white, 30 to 40 years old with a small build and blond hair. Her name may be Sarah.

Anyone with information is asked to call 311.

Meantime, an Australian cattle dog has been seized after a woman was bit in the face. It happened at a home in Ranchlands, around 10 p.m. on Friday.

Officials say the dog had been adopted just a week earlier, and the owner immediately signed it over to Animal and Bylaw Services.
