Police have taken 15 dogs into custody, including 9 puppies, as part of their investigation into a Thursday attack that claimed the life of a 37-year-old man.
Jonathan Hogg, who was kIlled in hospital after being seriously injured in a dog attack at around 9.10 p.m. on Thursday in Leigh, Greater Manchester, was remembered by his family as a “well-loved, sensitive, and kind person.”
Six adults and nine puppies were among the 15 canines that were found when officers from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) investigated two homes and are thought to be of the same breed as the dog that attacked Mr. Hogg.
GMP said that two people were detained in connection with the incident yesterday (May 19).
A 24-year-old guy was detained on suspicion of being in charge of a dog that was dangerously out of control and was responsible for injuries and fatalities.
An individual, 22, was detained on suspicion of money laundering.
