The Jack Russells were off their leads at the time they attacked the mini schnauzer.

The injured schnauzer was taken to the vets with bits to its neck and its fur pulled out.

A witness said its not the first time these dogs have attacked another dog in the park and its only a matter of time before they turn on a child.

Reporting a dog attack

If a dog attacks you, your dog or another animal, you should report the incident to the police.

If the attack is on your dog or another animal and you are told by the police that nothing can be done, do not take no for an answer – get an incident number and the contact details of the Dog Legislation Officer (DLO) for that area.

DEFRA advises that every police service should have a trained police DLO, but if this is not possible, every police service must have agreed procedures in place to gain access to a police DLO in order to facilitate this guidance.
