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.
