A woman has been left covered in blood after a horrific attack on her dog in a Melbourne park yesterday.
Kashila Chintamunnee took to social media to share photos of the terrifying incident that happened in Pakenham around 11am on Tuesday.
Ms Chintamunnee could only watch in horror as her 4 year old dachshund was mauled to death by another dog.
“She let go of her bloody dog and watched as it all happened,” she wrote on Facebook.
“My father opened our gate and Coco ran outside and had a sniff of the other dog … and he started mauling my dog,” Ms Chintamunnee told The Cranbourne Leader.
“The dog had bitten too deep into Coco’s main vessel as he had lost that much blood – I was drenched in his blood that’s how much there was.”
However, CCTV footage released by 10 News First shows Chintamunnee with three dogs off-leash before the incident took place.
In the footage, it appears Chintamunnee’s three dogs race towards the other woman and her Staffy, which was secured with a harness and leash.
The owner of the accused attacking dog said his wife, who was walking it at the time, was “distraught” by the whole accident.
“My wife tried to pull our dog back on the lead but she was struggling to separate the two of them,” he said.
Ms Chintamunee has reported the matter to the Police and Council.
