A British woman who tried to save her dog from getting snatched by an eagle has ended up running for cover when the bird started to attack her.

Suzanne Dodd, who resides in Benalmadena, Spain, had to fight off the Golden Eagle when she saw it grabbing her Jack Russell terrier named Kora by its collar and nose.

Dodd told The Daily Telegraph: "It was a surreal and terrifying experience."

As the bird struggled with Kora, Dodd moved in to stop it. She "grabbed hold of its enormous wing" but it led to the eagle attacking her instead.

The 43-year-old recalled that the eagle "swooped down on us about 20 times", chasing her as she ran away.

Dodd and Kora escaped with little injury - Kora with a wound on her snout, and Dodd with scratch wounds.
