SURREY (NEWS 1130) – The search is on for two large dogs a woman said mauled her puppy to death in Surrey this week.
It happened on Monday at Kennedy Dog Park, as the seven-month-old pup, named Odis, was being walked by its owner.
“Everything happened so fast,” she writes on Facebook, adding she was walking Odis when she came across a woman with two larger dogs.
“…before I knew it he was attacked and killed by these two large dogs that had broken away from this lady who was walking them,” the post reads. “Our poor puppy never had a chance and I watched in horror as Odis was brutalized.”
She says the owner of the two large dogs left the scene after the puppy was attacked, leaving her “there with my lifeless furbaby.”
“He has been the light of our life in the short 4 months we had him and only brought happiness to our lives. My family and I are beyond devastated and my 3 beautiful children no longer have the puppy they always dreamed of,” the post continues.
Surrey RCMP has confirmed officers were called to the park just after 11:30 a.m. for a report that “two large dogs had mauled a smaller dog to death.”
“Police attended the scene and initiated an investigation which has now been turned over to Animal Control,” Mounties say in a statement.
The City of Surrey would not provide any additional information, saying in an email that this “is an open investigation” with the city’s bylaw department.
Meanwhile, the family is pleading with anyone who may have information to contact police or bylaw officers.
