THIS is the moment a dog owner falls to his knees and grovels after his two dogs ripped a cat apart in front of a horrified family.

Sharon Boalch, 50, covered her daughter Shakira Jefferies’ eyes as their cat Cleo was mauled in front of their home.

In shocking footage capture by doorbell camera, the snarling Staffordshire Bull Terriers can be unleashing the horrific attack as their owner desperately tries to stop them.

The man is then seen apologising to the family, falling to his knees in front of them in their Ash Avenue home in Brickfields, Worcester last Thursday.

The owner can be heard telling the pair: “I was in the park and my dogs were following a black cat and they killed him. I was going to take him to the vet.”

Shakira, 16, can be seen bursting into tears after her beloved pet was killed.

She said: “I was in the front room as it was happening.

“I didn’t realise it was Cleo until a neighbour knocked on the door and asked if our cat was black and white.

“I collapsed on the floor screaming. I wish I’d helped her. I’d have rather been injured by the dogs than to lose my cat.

“My mind keeps going back to seeing her dead on the ground. I haven’t slept in days and I can’t eat.

“She didn’t deserve to die the way she did. I just want my cat back.”

Mum Sharon could be heard yelling “dogs should be on a lead” after being confronted with the devastating scene.

She added: “My daughter could hear all this commotion. She ran outside and saw what happened and came running to me in the back garden, screaming.

“I was sat on the doorstep crying and I had my daughter in my arms. It was awful. I cried all night. I can’t get it out of my head.

“And the fact that it happened on my drive, it’s disturbing.

“The footage clearly shows the dogs were out of control and going wild. These were big dogs. They should be muzzled.”

She claimed the family had not heard anything back from the dog owner, despite him saying he would take Cleo to the vet.

She has also contacted local vets in the area but none reported having Cleo brought in, meaning the family do not know here Cleo’s body had been left.


Mrs Boalch added:”I was in such a mess I didn’t realise she was dead, I presumed she was badly injured. It all happened so quickly.

“We can’t even bury her to say goodbye. We are devastated and my daughter won’t stop crying. We will never get closure.”

West Mercia Police have been contacted for comment.
