A 90-year-old woman has been left heart-broken after her beloved silky terrier Bear was mauled and killed after TWO DOGS attacked him at Kensington Park in Buddina.
The lady's neighbour Judy, said Bear's owner was in "terrible shock" and distraught.
"She was walking through Kensington Park when TWO BLACK DOGS attacked and ripped little Bear apart," Judy said.
Bear was taken to the vet and died of a heart attack as a result of the injuries.
"It was a terrible shock, because he wouldn't harm a flea," Judy said.
Judy said she would take Bear for walks if her neighbour wasn't up for it.
"But today she wanted to take him herself," Judy said.
"She said the dogs came from nowhere, and she stood in between them.
"She's lucky she wasn't seriously injured too."
Judy went back to the park to see if she could find the owner of the dogs.
"I went and had a look around, there was blood all over the footpath," Judy said.
"You wouldn't know whose dogs they were.
"Something needs to be done, heaps of kids play in that park and people on bikes."
Judy said Bear was a rescue dog and had been with the owner for six years.
"He adored the park, and if I was taking him for a walk he would sit down and wait for me if I ran into someone I knew," Judy said.
"Everyone knew Bear."
She said her neighbour was "terribly shocked" and in tears.
"I felt quite sick after she told me," Judy said.
"She was so upset, I've been over to see her and she couldn't eat her lunch, she's distraught... Bear was her companion."
