1 min read

Killer on the run after fatally stabbing Golden Labrador, Luna, at Perth park.

A manhunt is underway for a hoodie-wearing man who fatally stabbed a pet dog in a seemingly unprovoked attack in Perth's north.

Luna the Golden Labrador was off the leash for some exercise at Apple Blossom Polyantha Reserve in Mirrabooka around 6pm last night, when she was approached by the only other person in the park.

The man allegedly stabbed the four-year-old Lab in the torso and fled the scene.

Her 22-year-old female owner reportedly called family for help to get Luna to a nearby vet, where she sadly passed away.

Detectives are looking for a man described as in his 40s, tall, Caucasian with a light-coloured beard, wearing a tan-coloured hoodie and dark pants.

It's reported he had a small brown dog with him at the time.

Police are reviewing CCTV footage and want to speak to anyone who might lead to Luna's attacker.

Anyone with any information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
