Shocked families on a day out at a wildlife park watched in horror as a wallaby and a sheep were savaged by a stray pit-bull terrier. The dog tore the wallaby to pieces and left it lying dead then attacked the sheep which had to be put down by a vet. Staff at the Camperdown Wildlife Centre in Dundee captured the dog and handed it to police, who last night appealed for help to find its owner. One distressed dad said yesterday: "My children and I saw the carcasses just lying there. It was so upsetting that we left."
