Two people have been charged after a puppy died after being reportedly attacked by two dogs in Aberdeenshire. 

The puppy was reportedly attacked by the two dogs around 12.50pm on Saturday near Target Road in Portsoy. 

The five-month-old puppy was seriously injured following the incident and later died.

A 15-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man have been charged in connection with the incident. 

A report will be sent to the Youth Justice Management Team and the Procurator Fiscal.
