Two people have been charged in connection with an incident involving dogs in Portsoy.
The incident was reported as two dogs attacking a third and occurred around 12.50pm on Saturday, July 10 near to Target Road, Portsoy.
A five month old puppy was seriously injured and later died as a result.
A 15-year-old male youth and a 28-year-old man have been charged in connection.
A report will be sent to the Youth Justice Management Team and the Procurator Fiscal.

“I would ask all dog owners to ensure that their pets are kept on a strong lead and under control when out in public.”
