2 dogs mauled to death by 2 stray dogs in Anaheim Hills
ANAHEIM HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- The search is on for two stray dogs that killed two smaller dogs while walking with their owner in Anaheim Hills.
Julie Olin is now left with her dog Milo, after her two other dogs, Cona and Bella, were mauled to death. Olin says she was walking the dogs around 5:15 a.m. Wednesday on Willow Woods Drive when two large dogs suddenly charged them.
"I took my Pomeranian and turned him over and they started just mauling him," she said. "I tried to kick them, I'm screaming."
Neighbors ran to help and managed to get the big dogs to run away. The attack has families with children in the neighborhood worried.
"I have a little 8-month-old Papillion and I have three kids," said neighbor Mitzi Fowler. "The coyotes don't even attack people like that, so these are obviously dog-aggressive, and who knows if they would have attacked her."
Orange County Animal Care is searching for the dogs. Officials say one of the strays may be a Mastiff the other possibly a Pit Bull mix.
"Some animals may have aggressive tendencies toward other dogs, or even people, and that becomes definitely a public safety concern," said Ryan Drabek, director of Orange County Animal Care.
Olin has posted fliers around the neighborhood in an effort to find the dogs.
"I don't have kids, so they are my kids," she said. "They're my babies and nobody will ever be able to replace them."
Anyone with information is asked to call Orange County Animal Care.
