Attack report:

Walking my German shepherd on a lead along Keith Stephenson Park. A woman aged approximately late 50’s walking two brown English Staffie's. These dogs were on a lead. Female was unable to control and hold her dogs, they broke free and both ran towards my Shepherd throwing him to the ground and ripping him around the throat. I had to grab the dogs and throw them to prevent serious injuries. I confronted the female who quickly left the area . My dog was shaken, however thankfully he is very furry which limited his injuries. Had the dog been smaller these dogs would have killed it.
