A two-year-old beagle out for a walk on Wednesday with his dog walker was savagely attacked by two large dogs near St. Patrick’s High School in Winton, United Kingdom. The dog named Chester was killed.

According to the Daily Mail, Chester had been a gift from Jennifer Thornley to her husband Gary as a wedding present. The dog had been enjoying his daily walk with four other dogs on a nearby rugby field when the dog walker let Chester off his leash to run around. The dog walker, Janet Payne, recalls the terrible scene as two dogs approached Chester and immediately seized upon the smaller dog in a brutal attack:

” I was shouting to Chester to come, and I looked up and saw two big dogs with something between them. I just knew. I screamed,”stated Payne. “I clipped the other dogs to a railing and ran to Chester. He was in the middle of the field being pulled all over the place. The little boy was being torn to pieces.”

Payne said she tried to intervene and begged the man walking the large dogs to help. She said she had no other choice but to watch Chester thrown around like a “rag doll” and when she cried out for the owner of the two large dogs to help, he replied “Why the f*** wasn’t your dog on a lead?”

A video, which has gone viral, shows the owner trying to unlock his dogs’ jaws before walking away. Images of the disturbing scene continue to be circulated on Facebook.

According to the Greater Manchester Police, the two dogs have been seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act. The owner of the two dogs has apologized and stated his four-year-old brown ridgeback-staff named Deebo and a one-year-old Bully Kutta were normally fine around other dogs and gentle with his young three-year-old daughter.

He told the Mirror: “I’m absolutely devastated about what happened and that a couple have lost a dog that was a wedding present.”

The Daily Star reports the owner of the dogs, Paul Baxter  claimed he had been walking away in the video because he had been trying to lead his dogs away from Chester:

 “The Beagle came out of nowhere from behind and wasn’t on a lead. He started trying to get their ball, and they started biting him. I don’t know what set them off. I think at first Deebo might have been trying to protect Loki.”

Jennifer and Gary Thornley want the two dogs euthanized.

Rest in peace Chester.

    I made myself watch it, and it wasn’t easy. It was SICKENING! The bastard just walked away while his dogs had Chester between them eating him like he was a piece of meat!!!

    If that disgusting piece of s**t says he’s sorry or feels any remorse, he’s a lying SOS who’s only saying that because his dogs have been seized!!! He’s obviously one of those people who’s trained his dogs to kill! Too damned bad they didn’t begin and end with him!

    They must be euthanized, otherwise, the next time it will be a small child attacked and killed or seriously injured.

    In no way was that man doing anything to help that poor dog. And I saw no collars on his dog. The idiot should be euthanized along with the two dogs.

    This is heartbreaking, As the owner of a Beagle, I can attest to them not being so friendly with other dogs sometimes (our adopted Beagle took on our 95lb German Shepherd, thankfully, the Shepherd isn’t a fighter). Chester should never have been let off the leash. And I take it Debo and Loki weren’t leashed either! Irresponsible on all accounts. Now 3 dogs will lose their lives because of lack of supervision. What a horrible ordeal!

    So sorry that chesterfield died
    But to want the dogs euthanized is just wrong.. this is the owner of those two dogs fault..

    And I firmly believe dogs should always be on a lead. ..dog park or walking the dog it leaves them open to tragedies like this…

    Rest in peace Chester

    God got another angel

      My dog was attacked while on a leash, too, as I walked her past a house where the unleashed dog came out of the no where. Thankfully, my dog wasn’t injured too badly and the owner admitted his fault and paid for my vet bills.

    Absolutely sickening, horrifying and TOTALLY PREVENTABLE !!!!!!!!!! Take your dogs to dog parks if you want to let them off of leashes. This would have been totally prevented had ALL 3 DOGS been on leashes!!! WHY on earth do some dog owners feel they need to let their dogs run loose…..go to a damn dog park!!! This was both individuals fault. That poor sweet baby was eaten alive because the owners, guardians, etc did not have them leashed.
