This is the shocking moment a vicious pack of dogs launched a terrifying attack that killed a cat before they bit a mother as she tried to save the family pet.
The heartbroken family watched from inside their Liverpool suburban home on Sunday as four unattended mutts hunted down their small, grey moggy.
The dogs continued to maul the defenseless animal as it tried to hide under a car - dragging it out and brutally flinging it about appearing to try and pull it apart as it was carried helpless across the lawn.
The family - who rushed from the house to try and save their beloved pet - manage to scare off most of the pack but one relentless hound refuses to move as it continues to attack the cat.
The dog refuses to budge despite three people laying into the dog with brooms and umbrellas as they attempt to beat it away.

It only scatters when one was lifted in the air by its tail - at which point the owners scoop up the beloved family pet
The cat's owner later confirmed her beloved moggy (pictured following the attack) 'died in her arms' after spending the night at the vets
It only scatters when one was lifted in the air by its tail - and even then it quickly returns, biting the owner as well as her pet.
The woman was left with a bloody injury on her wrist as the teeth had punctured the skin - with one wound on her blood vessel, the owner claimed
She later confirmed the beloved cat 'died in her arms' after spending the night at the vets.
The woman, who doesn't wish to be named, said: 'My dad tried to get the dogs away, I don't know where he learnt it, maybe from TikTok or something but he pulled the dog in the air by the tail.
'It seemed to work. It let go of the cat and gave it the chance to run away.
'He was badly injured so my mum picked him up and went to take him into the house but the dogs followed - they bit her and the dogs tried to break into the house.
'They wouldn't stop.'
The owner said she was 'out of her mind' when she saw what happened to her cat.
She said: 'I was so shocked, I ran home to find my mum bleeding and my cat injured, I was out of my mind.
But as the savage hound is released it quickly returns, darting after the owner as it hunts the cat down

'We tried to help, took the cat for emergency care but he died.'
Merseyside Police are now investigating the incident and are asking anybody with information to get in touch with them.
A spokesperson from the force said: 'We are appealing for information following a report that four dogs attacked a cat and had bitten a woman in Belle Vale on Sunday 29 October.
'At around 12.40pm we received a report that four dogs were off their lead and had bitten a woman's hand and attacked a cat on Gallium Drive.
'The woman received treatment at hospital, and the cat was taken to the vet's where it sadly passed away.'
Reacting to the video, animal lovers spoke of their horror at seeing the savage attack.
One - Theresa Hann - said: 'Oh my goodness. Your poor cat didn't stand a chance. I am so sorry for your loss.
'The irresponsible owner of these 4 dogs needs to come forward. This will be a child next....or even an adult like your Mum.
'Your poor Mum and family. I am upset and so angry watching this!'
Another, called Debbie McComiskey, commented: 'That was absolutely horrific to see.
'Your lovely cat didn’t deserve that. So sorry.'
A third, Stephanie Cairns-Galvin, said: 'Oh my god I feel sick watching this - your poor baby. How traumatic for you all.'
And a third - Dannielle Nicketa Ellis - praised the people who tried to save the cat.
She said: 'Horrendous! So brave of them people to help, the dogs could have turned on them aswell! Poor cat.'
