An attempt is to be made today to capture a dog that is on the loose on an estate in Lynn.

Lindsey Forrest, of the dog welfare group Shaman’s Legacy, will be co-ordinating attempts to corner the small terrier-type animal in the Elvington area of the Springwood estate.

Ms Forrest said: “He is very frightened and is not happy with attempts thus far by members of the public to attempt to corner or catch him.

“I urge local residents not to be leaving food out for him as that is what I’ll be using to entice him into the trap. I also need to urge people that if they see him, not to try and contact him but to report sightings to me via telephone on 07943812827 as I am tracking his movements to ensure I put the trap in a viable area.

“I would also like to ask that people leave the trap alone as there are local residents who will be checking it regularly for me to ensure that no other pets or animals are caught by mistake.

“There are no dogs of this dog’s description listed as missing though he does seem to be in reasonably good physical health so if anyone is missing a Terrier type dog, please do contact me on the number given.

“Can I also take this opportunity to thank the local residents who have been out this evening tracking this little dog with me.

“The dog warden at the Dogotel in Hillington are aware and are working alongside myself to ensure a safe capture of the dog.”
