How do the police deal with animals loose on roads?
Police have deliberately run over a dog running loose on a road, saying they had "no alternative" way to minimise risk for motorists. But what are the rules on such incidents, asks Justin Parkinson.
The foxhound was on the A55. A car and a lorry had to swerve to avoid it and one officer was bitten as he tried to catch it, according to police. In the end, they decided to kill it, by running it over at a fast enough speed to ensure it "would not suffer".
