NUDGEE BEACH, QUEENSLAND AU - KEESHA MOIGNARD AND HER DAUGHTER WERE RIDING THEIR HORSES WHEN A LARGE BLACK DOG CHARGED THEM AND ATTACKED BOTH HORSES BRINGING ONE TO ITS KNEES AND BIT HER

FOOTAGE of a dog attacking two horses on Nudgee Beach has emerged on social media.
The footage shows Keesha Moignard and her 19-year-old daughter Lucie trying to keep hold of their two horses as a large black dog runs towards them and attacks.
Onlookers gasped during the incident last Saturday morning while others took photos and videos of the attack, which brought one horse to its knees.
Ms Moignard claims she was also bitten on the knee during the chaos.
The video has had more than 107,000 Facebook views and 1100 shares.
Ms Moignard said the horses sustained multiple cuts and bite marks which were confirmed by a veterinary report to be “consistent with a very aggressive dog attack”.
One horse was also bitten on the neck, just centimetres from a major artery.
Brisbane City Council and Queensland Police have been approached for comment.

The wounds don't look bad, but I know a woman whose horse was attacked by an AmStaff (big pit bull). The horse had been an excellent trail and mountain horse before the attack. Afterward, it was so afraid of everything it was a danger on mountain trails. Bolted once, and nearly pushed my horse and myself off a cliff. Totally useless, and she didn't have the $$ to keep a pasture pet, so...

Please remember that the next time some dumba** dog owner says 'it was only playing' when it attacks a horse.

That is so sad Anon. I so wish that horses were more like mules in their self-preservation instincts. We'd have less pits and more live, un-injured horses.
