Police are appealing for witnesses and information following reports of a dog being dangerously out of control in Harpenden.
The incident occurred at around 4.10pm on Thursday 31 August, at Batford Springs Nature Reserve.
It is reported that a six-year-old girl was swinging on a zipwire when a dog, described as a brown Dachshund, jumped up and bit her on the back while off its lead.
The dog then ran off before leaving the park with its owner.
PC Seán Lannon, from the St Albans East and London Colney Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Our enquiries are continuing, and we are appealing for anyone with information to please come forward.
“We have a limited description of the dog owner, who is described as a white woman, around 30 years of age and 5ft 7ins tall. If this is you, or you believe you know the owner, please contact us.
“Additionally, if you have any further information that may help our investigation, please email me.”
You can also report information online, speak to an operator in our Force Communications Room via our online web chat or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/69937/23.
Alternatively, you can stay 100% anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their untraceable online form (opens in new window).
