THIS is the horrifying moment an XL Bully grabs a tiny dog by the throat in a savage attack – as a man tries to pull the beast off.
The hound's owner was reportedly walking it on a lead in Maghull near Liverpool on Sunday afternoon when it tore free from its collar.
It gripped a small white dog by the throat and viciously shook it in the air.
Passers-by tussled with the XL Bully for nearly five minutes before they were able to prise the little dog out of its jaws.
Merseyside Police said: "We can confirm we received a report that a dog had attacked another dog in Maghull yesterday, Sunday 10 September.
"At around 4.45pm, it was reported a dog, believed to be an XL bully, had been walking on Old Hall Road when it slipped out of its collar and ran away from its male owner.

It is understood that the little dog needed stitches but otherwise had a lucky escape.
