What an awful way to begin a holiday weekend. Once again, aggressive pit bull dogs are in the news in San Bernardino.
A two-year old little boy, is dead after the family's pit bull attacked him, leaving him with severe neck and head injuries. The boy's dad left him alone for a few minutes in the yard while he rode his tricycle. When his mother came out a few minutes later to check on him, she found him in the pit bull's mouth. A neighbor, after hearing screams, called 911 - an ambulance arrived taking him to Loma Linda University Medical Center where he died the next day.
Neighbors said the dogs seemed to be good dogs and do not know what caused one to attack the little boy. The San Bernardino Animal Control impounded both dogs, although only one was involved in the attack, for 10-day quarantine before deciding what to do with them. The family only had the attacker for 3 months.
This is an unfortunate and tragic accident. The entire family are all distraught.
