Attack report:

I was walking linear park trail with my small dog. He is always on leash. He was approached by a large brown bullmastiff who was unleashed. He violently attacked several times. I tried lifting him up to me to prevent more bites. The bullmastiff was jumping up to attack him further. The lady had no leash to control her dog and tried holding him around his stomach . After the attack I requested her details, the lady refused and told me that I needed to get a bigger dog, she walked off laughing. Several bystanders witnessed the attack. I recorded her and have submitted to police and will be reported the dog as dangerous.
