Dog kills chickens as men watch

The RSPCA has begun an investigation after a dog was set on two chickens on a car park on the Wirral.

A group of men let the birds out of a sack before they were attacked and killed by the bull terrier outside flats on Slatey Road, Prenton.

The RSPCA said the chickens were then put back in the sack and taken away.

They are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which they say involved three or four white men who were in their late teens or early 20s.

Witness appeal

RSPCA Inspector Rachel Miller said: "We have brief descriptions of three of the people involved, but need more information.

"We want to hear from anyone else who witnessed the incident."

One of the men is described as about 6ft (1.8m) with dark thinning hair, another about 5ft 8in (1.7m) with cropped fair hair, and a third had medium-length dark hair.
