Officers in Levenmouth are appealing for witnesses after a dog was knocked down and killed by a youth riding a motorcycle recklessly in Methil at the weekend.

Once again I find myself making a plea for witnesses for a needless incident because of the irresponsible and reckless attitude of individuals riding these poorly maintained motorcycles around popular walking areas

Sergeant Mike Collins

Sergeant Mike Collins, from Levenmouth Police Station, said: “We are currently pursuing several lines of enquiry to try and identify the culprit but we need the help of the local community to put a name to them.

“The dog, a white Saluki, was being walked by its owner at the time.”

He continued: “Once again I find myself making a plea for witnesses for a needless incident because of the irresponsible and reckless attitude of individuals riding these poorly maintained motorcycles around popular walking areas.

“This incident reinforces the danger posed to pedestrians by the illegal use of motorcycles both on and off-road.

“Because of this a pet has been killed and the owner is left feeling distraught.

“The youth responsible has been described as male, late teens, average build, wearing a lime green helmet with tinted visor, grey jumper and blue jeans.

“The off-road motorcycle is described as partially lime green in colour.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Police on 101 or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
