Dog Fight on Private School Field Leaves One Dog Dead

Greenwich Police said on Saturday there was an incident on Cardinal Road, the dead end where GCDS fields are on one side and the Greenwich Skating Club operates on the other. Homes along Fairfield Rd back up to the fields.

According to Lt Mark Zuccerella a Labrador was off leash on the GCDS field being trained on Saturday afternoon when another dog, an Affenpinscher, which is a terrier-like toy Pinscher from an adjacent property got loose.

“He got underneath the fence and escaped his yard,” Zuccerella said. “The dogs got into a kerfuffle and this (the Affenpinscher) succumbed to his injuries.”

Zuccerella said the private school reached out to Greenwich PoliceĀ  Community Impact Office about the incident and Animal Control followed up.

He also said the dogs were both up-to-date on vaccines and that the school plans to post No Trespassing signs on their fields.
