Twitch suspended her account shortly after the incident on Friday.
A note when trying to access Sidneuke's channel reads: "This channel is currently unavailable due to a violation of Twitch's Community Guidelines or Terms of Service."
The Lower Silesian Inspectorate for Animal Protection has confirmed it has notified the prosecutor's office about the incident.
A spokesman told Polsat News: "We decided to notify the prosecutor's office in this case.
"The first issue that is beyond doubt is that dogs should not run free.
"However, since they were already running, then: [she] should [have] stopped and reacted.
"It's empathy and social duty."
In Poland, drivers are banned from using hand-held phones while driving.
Twitch has not confirmed why Sidneuke's account has been suspended or whether the ban is permanent.
