Puppy dies after skull fractured in Northern Beaches

Police are appealing for public assistance after a puppy died after being found with head injuries in her backyard on the Northern Beaches yesterday.

The owner of a six-month-old chocolate Labrador – called Coco – returned to their home in Cobbadah Place, Freshwater, about 3.15pm (Tuesday 1 September 2020), to find the puppy injured and unresponsive in the backyard.

The dog was immediately taken to the local vet; however, she died.

The incident has now been reported to officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command.

They have been advised by the vet that X-rays confirm the dog had a fractured skull and an investigation into the cause of the puppy’s death is now under investigation.
