The owner of the small dog, who was killed days ago at a Minneapolis, Minn., park, is speaking out about the traumatic attack, reported My Fox 9 News.

Ziggy, an eight-year-old Papillon, was killed on Sunday evening at the Martin Luther King Jr. park, when a dog, described as a boxer/pit bull mix, attacked. The larger dog, who was being walked by a child, charged when he saw Ziggy; the child lost control.

Though an adult woman, presumed to be the child's mother, was standing there when the large dog attacked, she did nothing to call the dog off. Ziggy's guardian, Julene Lind, stated:

She just stood there, and she had a baby and three small children with her and they just stood on the side and watched their dog kill our dog,"

The large dog did not stop the attack until Ziggy was dead. At that point, the woman, and her children, simply walked away, refusing to call 9-1-1, or even apologize.

The authorities are looking for the woman, and the dog - anyone who has information is asked to call Animal Control at 612-370-1434.

The woman with the large breed dog had a baby, two small boys and a girl aged nine or 10, at the time of the incident.
