Puppy suffers broken bones in alleged hit and run

Tuesday 15 November 2022

A five-month-old dog was left needing treatment for broken bones following an alleged hit and run last week.

Police are appealing for information about the incident, which was reported to have taken place just north of Motor Mall on La Grande Route de St. Jean last Wednesday (9 November), between 17:50 and 18:00.

Lesley Bassford was walking her dog, Mila, along La Fredee Lane before she was "spooked" and ran onto the main road, where she was hit by a car heading south.

Police have said the driver didn’t stop.

Mila is a medium-sized, five-month old black Labrador.

Mila was taken to the vet and is undergoing treatment for broken bones, but is expected to recover.

Police would like to speak to the driver of the car involved, or anyone who may have seen the incident.
