This is the terrifying moment a pair of loose Rottweilers burst into a family home and kill two beloved cats, leaving the resident and her children screaming for help.
The attack happened on Wednesday, August 30, at lunchtime on a street in the suburb of Chelmsley Wood, north of Solihull in the West Midlands.

Rottweilers are legal to own in Britain because the breed is not listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act, which banned the Japanese Tosa and the American Pitbull Terrier in 1991.
