On Saturday 15 December, a female and her adult son were walking her poodle at the Kernot Hall Lake at 10am.

The dogs are described as bull mastiff or bull terrier breed.

As the female noticed these dogs, she picked her poodle up out of concern. The unleashed dog then charged at the female grabbing the poodle out of her arms. The female's son attempted to pull the poodle's head out of the dog's mouth with the assistance of the other owner. Once the poodle was released, the male and female then left the are in a small red car. The dog is described as being white and grey in colour.
