Yesterday morning at the Tuggeranong dog park I witnessed a horrific dog attack on a poor lady with 2 little silky terriers. Whilst this poor lady was leaving the dog park another lady was coming in with two large male boxers she had no control over. Suddenly and totally unprovoked the boxers attacked and had the lady and her dogs on the ground with both of the dogs mauling one of the little terriers.
Horrified my friend and I ran to assist as much as we could, as did another lady ( whom was much stronger and maneged to get one of the dogs off)
Another lady also came and managed to separate the boxers and break it up ( the owner was standing there screaming hysterically, she had no control at all). I was shocked at the amount of people who simply stood there with the hands over their mouths watching. There was around 20 people in the dog park and only 4 of us ran to assist. I mean I am not saying everyone should have run over and put themselves in danger but atleast someone could have helped the poor lady off the ground while we tried to save her dogs, or maybe some of the big burly blokes sitting on the chairs could have helped, it was unbelievable.
Also, WHY the hell do people with aggressive dogs, that they cannot control take them to the dog park, I just don’t understand it how stupid can you be?? If you have aggresive dogs leave them at home.
If anyone knows what happened to the little brown dog I would love to know, it was rushed to the vet but it didn’t look to be in a good way, I should add that I did hear the lady with the boxers offer to cover all vet bills.
Shame on those onlookers who did nothing to help.
