Horrifying footage as pet dog dragged into river by crocodile

  • 24/02/2017

A Mexican family watched in horror as their beloved dog was snatched by a crocodile and dragged away to its death.

Incredible footage of the incident features the cries and screams of a child watching as the reptile swoops to clasp the dog in its powerful jaws.

Earlier in the video, a man on the bank of the river had tossed a rope around the crocodile - and once the dog had been captured, he tried to drag them both back to shore.

However that was to no avail - and the crocodile evaded the man's best efforts to capture it and wades into the depths with the dog confirmed as its next meal.
