Schoolboy goes into bat for beaten dog

Wellington SPCA are hailing a young boy who saved a dog that was being attacked with a cricket bat.
On Thursday afternoon, Damon Boyer-Marwood, 12, was walking home from Brandon Intermediate School in Cannons Creek when he heard an animal yelping.
He investigated and found a group of several boys around his age attacking a small female terrier cross dog.
The boys were holding the dog down and taking turns to kick it.
One of the boys also had a cricket bat and was hitting the dog with it, a Wellington SPCA spokesman said.
Damon told the group of boys to leave. "They stood there for a bit, then they ran inside."
He said he did not think it was fair that the boys were hitting Rose.
Damon took the dog to a friend's house, before calling the SPCA.  MORE>>
