A man has been ordered to keep his pet under control after it attacked another dog at a park in Dewsbury.
Two dogs belonging to Stephen Freeman pounced on border terrier Oscar as its owner was walking him in Crow Nest Park.
Oscar was left with serious injuries after the animals grabbed him by the neck and ear.
One of the dogs responsible - a banned Pit Bull Terrier - has since been seized and destroyed.
The attack happened on May 23 as owner Christine Todd was walking Oscar through the park.
Freeman’s dogs were off their leads and came running towards them but he shouted them back.
Miles Barker, prosecuting on behalf of Kirklees Council, said: “She gave them a wide berth but the next minute there was a dog at each side of Oscar.
“One had got hold of him by the throat and the white-coloured dog had him by the ear.
“She was shouting (at Freeman) to get the dogs off him but he seemed to be in a daze.
“He managed to get hold of the white dog but the other dog still had hold of Oscar and was shaking the dog by the throat and in the air.”
As Ms Todd battled in the mud to save her pet, the other dog got free and went for Oscar again.
Mr Barker said: “She said: ‘I thought they were going to kill Oscar, they had blood all over their mouths’.”
The dogs eventually let go of Oscar and another woman picked him up and took him into the park office.
He had a gaping wound to his throat and needed surgery at a local vets.
Magistrates heard that the white dog, a bull terrier type called Snowy, and the darker dog named Toby, belonged to Freeman.
Toby, a fighting dog, was illegally kept and was taken away and put to sleep.
Magistrates ordered Freeman, of Gledhill Terrace in Dewsbury Moor, to keep Snowy under proper control.
The dog must be kept muzzled and on a lead in public and insured against third party liability.
Freeman, who was not in court, has to pay £432 prosecution costs.
