This is the horrifying moment a hungry pack of wolves ate a pet dog after its owner accidentally dropped it into their enclosure at a Chinese zoo. 

Video footage shows the predators mauling the pooch as they crowded round in a circle before one wolf runs off with it between its fangs in the Wild Wolf Valley, near the city of Changi in northern Xinjiang on Monday. 

The person who filmed the video said the owner was holding the small dog and watching the wolves from an observation deck when it slipped and fell down to the wolves.

The dog was a shichon, a cross between a Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frise, according to the news site Baidu.

In the footage, seven wolves are seen attacking the dog as onlookers scream in shock.

The wolves chomp into the poor pooch and refuse to give it up.

After a struggle, two of the three remaining wolves apparently give up the fight and allow a pack member to run off with the dead dog between its fangs.

The triumphant wolf runs off into the distance with the animal in its mouth as the rest of the pack follows behind.

Local media that said the dog was killed in the attack but did not reveal whether the body was recovered or eaten before it could be removed.

While it is rare for some pets to fall into zoo enclosures, it has happened in the past. 

A pet dog had a narrow escape in 2017 after it slipped through its owner's arms and fell into a tigers den at a zoo in Jiangsu Province, eastern China.

Two tigers could be seen staring at the dog after it fell from a viewing platform on the first floor and into a moat which separates the animals and tourists.  

The lucky pooch was rescued by zookeepers with a net after they shot firecrackers towards the two Siberian tigers.
