A woman claims she has been bitten and had to have a tetanus jab after a dog attack in Padstow.
It happened as she tried to separate her cocker-poodle and a bull mastiff at St George's Cove.
Pirate FM understands it is the fourth attack since July.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Padstow police are trying to find the owners of a dog which attacked another on the beach on Wednesday 10 December at around 11.30am.
"A white-grey bull mastiff was off the lead and being walked by two females aged around 60 and 40-years-old along with a greyhound, when the mastiff is believed to have attacked another dog (poodle spaniel cross) at St George's Cove, between St Saviour's Point and Gun Point.
"As the owner of the poodle spaniel cross tried to separate the animals the bull mastiff bit her on the hand. She needed medical treatment."
Anyone with information about Wednesday's dog attack is asked to call the police on 101, quoting crime reference CR/129004/14.
