Rottweiler kills silky terrier at fun dog walk

Rottweiler kills silky terrier at fun dog walk

Silky terrier Honey died after being bitten by a Rottweiler at a dog walk on Sunday. It had been unleashed, while the Rottweiler had been unmuzzled. -- PHOTO: COURTESY OF JOREEN YEO By Mavis Toh It happened in a split second. One owner had unleashed her silky terrier while waiting to take part in a ball-throwing event for dogs, while another had unmuzzled his Rottweiler so it could drink water. Then the 40kg Rottweiler snapped at the 4.3kg silky terrier, killing it almost instantly. The events leading up to the fatal incident took place so quickly that no one saw clearly what happened. The incident happened on Sunday at the annual national dog walk at East Coast Park. On Monday, owners of the two dogs blamed each other for the death of three-year-old female silky terrier Honey.
