(TIML NEWS) The owners of an American Staffordshire terrier named Molly watched in horror as their pet was snatched by a shark on an Australian beach on Sunday. The rescue dog was fetching a stick from the water off Bonna Point Reserve in a suburb of Sydney, Australia, when a shark pulled her underwater,
The dog’s owner, Nigel, told the newspaper there was nothing he or his wife could do to stop the predator — believed to be a bull shark — from grabbing the dog in the spontaneous attack.
Nigel told the newspaper they were about to leave the beach when Molly, who they rescued from a shelter two years ago, was taken. Sadly, the couple didn’t see the dog again and her body hasn’t been found.
