This is the terrifying moment an out-of-control dog attacked two police horses in a park as witnesses tried to stop the animal.

The footage, captured yesterday by a passer-by in Victoria Park, London, shows the chaotic scenes as officers scream for the canine to be put on a lead.

Members of the public are seen to intervene, with one man using a long stick to try to get the dog away from the horses.

Officers were heard shouting ‘get the dog now’, ‘get the dog’ and ‘get on with it’ as they tried to control their horses which were kicking out violently.

A man dressed in camouflage clothing appears to be the owner, who seemingly stands back while other people intervene.

An officer dismounted the horse immediately after the dog is moved away and shouted for the dog to be put on a lead immediately.

One of the mounts is thought to have suffered leg injuries and both are believed to have been traumatised after the dog bit at their legs and body.

A witness, 37, told the Sun she was walking her dog when she saw the other canine looking at the horses.

She said: ‘It was shocking and scary. You could tell it was bad. I spotted the dog and the body language was way too interested in the horses and was going over to antagonise them.

‘The officers were trying to get the owner to get the dog under control and secured.’

She said one person managed to grab the dog but the owner then took his time to put the dog on a lead.

The witness added she was ‘apologetic’ she couldn’t do anything to help but felt she had to keep her own dog under control.

She accused some owners of the type of dog breed as only buying them for the ‘status’ and urged dog owners to keep their pets on a lead.
