A man was injured and his pet was killed after a vicious attack by two off-leash dogs, despite the owner trying to stop the angry pitbulls by hitting them with a stick.
Patrick, 30, was walking his beloved pet cavalier cross poodle ‘Kevy’ on Moonee Ponds Creek Trail in Jacana, north Melbourne, on Thursday.
They were attacked by two dogs described as “husky” and possibly pit bulls, leaving 15-year-old Kevy with horrific injuries from which he later died.
Patrick suffered scratches, bruises and required stitches for cuts on his leg and upper body.
Talking to 3AWPatrick said he tried to protect Kevy from the brutal attack.
“He was screaming and asking for help from anyone who could hear,” he said.
‘About two minutes into all this, the man who was the owner arrived on the scene. He at first he stood there without saying anything, so when I realized someone was there, I begged him to help me.
Kevy, a 15 year old cavoodle (pictured) has sadly died in a dog attack in North Melbourne.
Patrick called the attack “ruthless.”
Police are investigating the attack and have released descriptions of the dogs and their owner.
The owner is described as Middle Eastern with a medium build, approximately 175 cm tall, in his 30s, with short dark hair.
One of his dogs was black and the other brown and white.
Patrick said the man hit his dogs with a stick to prevent them from attacking him, but when this failed, he fled without helping them, leaving his dogs behind.
Police are requesting witnesses in the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail area Thursday night and for information that may help identify the owner and his two dogs.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
