A dog owner has defended her miniature Staffordshire terrier after it mauled a Dachshund to death in a park in Melbourne, Australia.

Kashila Chintamunnee shared a post on Facebook in which she accused Claudia Harrison of letting go of her dog and allowing it to maul Coco for 10 minutes on Tuesday morning (5 November). She also shared pictures of the pavement and the Staffy, named Hero, covered in blood.

However, Mrs Harrison has refuted Ms Chintamunnee's version of events, claiming Hero was set upon by three loose dogs.

In a statement on behalf of his 'traumatised' wife, husband Paki Harrison said: "My son and I were taking our dog for a walk up the hill near the lake; three dogs approached us from behind - two smaller dogs and one larger dog.

"The larger dog started to bark excessively and I tried to get my son behind me to keep him safe.

"I pulled my dog away at the same time. My dog was on his lead with a harness. I looked around but there was no owner in sight, and I was worried for my son."

"I yelled and tried to signal for nearby help but there wasn't anyone. At this stage I couldn't keep the dogs away from my dogs or keep my son safe."

Mrs Harrison then managed to flag down a passing car, and the people inside 'happened to be the owner of the three dogs that were let out'.

The statement continued: "I then hear the husband come out after the event and say he opened the garage and let the dogs out. At no stage did he come out and collect his dogs, and they were left unattended."

Grainy CCTV footage appears to corroborate Mrs Harrison's version of events, with loose dogs appearing to pursue her and Hero in the park.

However, Ms Chintamunnee said she has contacted police and the council and has argued that Hero is not safe to be in public.

According to 9 News, she said: "It was the most traumatic thing I've ever experienced in my life. I've seen it on shows on websites, in movies but you'd never think to see it with your own eyes.

"We cared for him like a baby, he was our baby."

It is not yet clear what will happen with Hero.
