Family mourn 79-year-old man attacked by 'out of control' dog
Monday 27 May 2013
The "heartbroken" family of a pensioner killed after being attacked by a dog have paid tribute to him. Clifford Clarke, 79, was in the garden of his home in Clubmoor, Liverpool, when he was mauled by an "out of control" dog on Saturday evening.
Merseyside Police said their investigation into the death of Mr Clarke at his home is still ongoing and appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
Officers were called shortly after 8.30pm and when they arrived they found Mr Clarke lying on the ground with the animal nearby. An armed unit was called in to shoot the dog.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said a post-mortem examination showed Mr Clarke died from "multiple injuries consistent with a dog attack". Two women, aged 27 and 28, were arrested and later bailed. They had been held on suspicion of manslaughter and an offence under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
