Pit Bull Attacks Six Year Old

A Chicago Boy was hospitalized after undergoing plastic surgery after a neighbor’s dogs attacked the 6-year old. The boy doesn’t play with the dogs, yet they see him every day. The incident began when the boy was retrieving a ball that had gone across a fence in the neighbor’s yard. The boy had gained access to the yard because the fence had been partially knocked down after a recent storm. Officers were flagged to the scene and they tried to lift the boy over the fence, “but the dogs were relentless in their grip of the young victim.” The officer used pepper spray and ended up killing two of the dogs. The boy was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in Chicago with serious personal injuries. The doctors performed plastic surgery on both of his legs, which had been mauled from his thighs to his feet and had one gash so deep it exposed muscle tissue. The owner of the dog was surprised that the dogs mauled the boy and caused such great personal injuries. At this time, no lawsuits have been filed. To read the full story, click here.
