Villagers in Partridge Green witnessed the bizarre sight of a pack of dogs roaming around the area this morning (Wednesday August 12).
It is believed around 20 hounds escaped from a kennel when a gate was left open, some time after 8am.
A Sussex Police spokesperson said the dogs were seen at one point in High Street, where they were involved in a fight with another dog.
The other dog was not seriously hurt and the owner advised police that no veterinary treatment was necessary.
The hounds were reported to be under control and all accounted for by 9.30am. There are no other reports to any injuries or damage to people or other animals.
Police helped to round up the runaway dogs, while locals took to a village Facebook page to discuss the strange sight.
