Attack report:

I was walking along the beach and noticed a beagle off leash coming towards me behaving in an aggressive manner, snapping at dogs, barking and basically spoiling for a fight. After I had passed, I heard my dog squealing from behind me and turned around to see the beagle on the back of my dog, whose legs were pushed from beneath her. The beagle's owner was chasing but had absolutely no control of his animal. It was only that my dog was quicker that she got away. Owner did not speak to me or say sorry.
