A mutilated little boy died at his aunt’s house after a pack of dogs attacked him – Crime Online
A Texas boy died after a pack of dogs attacked him on Wednesday while he was at a relative’s home in Baytown.
Baytown officers responded to the home around 7:40 a.m. after someone called 911 regarding a dog fight. When officers arrived at the scene, they learned that a 4-year-old had been attacked by the dogs while the fight was unfolding.
The incident happened in the 2700 block of Massey Tompkins Road, according to Baytown Police.
“It just shocked me. It really shocked me,” neighbor Yahir Martinez, who called 911, told KHOU. “I just told them to hurry up because the baby was unconscious.”
“Being a baby and being pampered was breathtaking,” Martinez continued. “I guess part of his face was missing, that’s what really appealed to me.”
The resident of the house, apparently the child’s aunt, was also injured in the attack.
Neighbors said the fight broke out between a pack of pit bulls who were otherwise known to be friendly dogs. Martinez added that neighbors in the Baytown neighborhood had the dogs “for a while.”
“They’ve had them for a while, these dogs weren’t new. I don’t know if maybe the little boy provoked them or something. It’s always sad.
Animal Control arrived on the scene and took away two adult dogs and two puppies. No charges, so far, have been filed.
The child’s identity has not yet been released. The story develops; check back for updates.
