- Advertisment -

A man has been injured and his pet killed following a vicious attack by two off-leash dogs, despite the owner trying to stop the furious pitbulls by beating them with a stick. 

Patrick, 30, was walking his beloved pet poodle cavalier cross ‘Kevy’  at the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail in Jacana in Melbourne‘s north on Thursday. 

They were attacked by two dogs described as ‘stocky’ and possibly pitbulls , leaving 15-year-old Kevy with horrific injuries that he later died from. 

Patrick suffered scratches, bruises and required stitches for cuts to his leg and upper body.

Speaking to 3AW, Patrick said he attempted to shield Kevy from the brutal attack.

‘I was screaming and calling for help just from anyone who could hear,’ he said.

‘About two minutes into this whole thing the man who was the owner arrived on the scene. At first he just stood there and said nothing, so when I noticed someone was there I was begging this person to help me.’

Patrick said the attack was ‘heartless’. 

Police are investigating the attack and have released descriptions of the dogs and their owner.

The owner is described as Middle Eastern in appearance with a medium build, approximately 175cm tall, aged in his late 30s, with short dark hair. 

One of his dogs was black and the other brown and white. 

Patrick said the man hit his dogs with a stick to stop them from attacking but when this failed he fled without assisting them and leaving his dogs. 

Police are appealing for any witnesses around the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail area on Thursday evening and for information that may assist in identifying the owner and his two dogs.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
