Eira Thomas was walking her one-year-old cocker spaniel along the beach when she and her dog were attacked by a group of five dogs. The dogs appeared to be Rottweilers.
Ms. Thomas had to be taken to the hospital while her dog, Bella, had to be put down. She stated that as they were walking along the beach the dogs just came out of nowhere and attacked.
A man arrived on the scene a short time later apologizing for his dogs and stating that he didn’t realize she was there.
Ms. Thomas left the scene and rushed Bella to the hospital because of the serious injuries she sustained and then went to the hospital herself immediately after.
The police have not been able to locate the man and his five dogs though. They are continuing the investigation and looking for anyone who might have some information.
