Fontana dog-mauling hearing set

A Fontana couple, are charged with seven felony counts of allowing their five vicious pit-bull dogs to roam free and cause severe bodily injury to three small children. A preliminary hearing on June 2 will determine if the couple should stand trial.

A woman and her four children were taking a walk near the railroad tracks in Fontana in February when the dogs attacked three of the children. The dogs dug under a fence and got out. A 5-year old girl, suffered broken ribs, a punctured lung, and bites on her arms, legs, neck and face. She was placed on life support for a short time and then released from the hospital. Her 6-year old brother needed over 200 stitches for leg wounds while their 7-year old sister, required 20 stitches for leg wounds.

A young neighborhood boy tried to help by throwing rocks at the dogs. Police shot and killed one of the dogs and the other four were put to sleep. What a sad story. People need to make sure their dogs, especially potentially dangerous ones, are secure in their yard.
