It has been reported that she saw another woman walking a brown Spaniel who she claims was being called Harry. This dog attacked the two smaller dogs twice before the owner picked them up.

The Spaniel then attempted to get the dogs she was holding and bit her arm, causing a large bruise and puncture wound.

The woman owner of the offending dog Harry is described as white, in her 50s, 5 feet 5" tall, slim build with mousey blond bobbed hair and wearing a brown rain mac.
