Attack report:

I was walking my dog with a friend and her dog. Another dog ran across the soccer oval to the playground and bit my dog and wouldn't let go. When the owner got there he tried helping but his animal wouldn't let go of my dog. We ended up on the ground before the dog finally let go of my dog.

The attack happened at the children’s playground on Fort St, Grange opposite Gurner Terrace. It was a Brindle bull type breed that attacked . Extremely distressing to witness . My friends Dog elderly & wearing a no dogs harness being walked on a back lift sling. It cannot run to protect itself due to its age and hip issues. Other Dog off lead and highly aggressive - looking for a fight. Friends dog severe face & ear lacerations. Friend hand and leg injuries.
