SHOCKING CCTV catches the horrific moment a guide dog is brutally savaged
SHOCKING CCTV catches the horrific moment a guide dog is brutally savaged by a vicious cross-breed dog.
The appalling footage shows the beast's jaws clamp down on the terrified black Labrador's neck.
The dog's owner kicks and punches at his crazed animal to try to end the attack in a railway station tunnel.

But the dog refuses to give up and it takes several attempts before he finally manages to prise the powerfully-built pooch away.

The callous owner then abandons the badly-injured Labrador and its blind female owner — who was forced to let go of her dog's lead when the attack started — to fend for themselves.
The guide dog needed emergency veterinary care for deep puncture wounds to its neck.
Cops are now hunting the pit bull's owner and have released the CCTV in a bid to find him. mpu
The man is described as white, aged mid to late twenties, around 5'11'' tall, and of slim build.
He had a cropped beard, brownish to red hair, which was cut short, and was wearing a grey-coloured top and black tracksuit bottoms.
The dog is described as a muscular terrier, possibly a cross-breed, brown with white paws, white around its nose and at the tip of its tail.
PC Gerry Griffin said: "We have carried out a number of local enquiries and ask that anyone who recognises the man gets in contact with us.
"The owner would do well to hand himself in as his animal poses a clear danger to other dogs and to the public."
Anyone with information about the attack at Cricklewood Station in London on October 4 is asked to call police on 0800 405040.
