. West Mercia Police has now joined forces with civilian group, Canine Capture, in a bid to find the animal. The force has stressed it does not wish the dog harm but has 'a duty to protect the public'. Chief Inspector Tracy Ryan, from the Shropshire Command Team, said: "This dog has been on the run for a few days now and it is likely that he is very scared and therefore his reactions will be unpredictable. The longer this goes on the more frightened he will become and the higher the risk. "We do not want to frighten members of the public but we do want to be very clear that if they try to approach the dog it could react aggressively and we do not want them to put themselves at risk. "If you see the dog call 999 immediately so that we and our civilian experts can take appropriate action. We do not wish the dog harm but we have a duty to protect the public."
