Tanner Smith, 5, Mauled To Death By Two Pit Bulls

Tanner SmithVIDOR, TX – Tanner Smith would have turned 6-years-old today, but on Sunday he was mauled to death by two pit bulls.

Tanner was with his mother visiting one of her mother’s friends when the attack happened.

When Tanner’s mother learned she had mistakenly thought her son was outside with her friend’s father, she went outside and found Tanner had been mauled by the family’s two pit bulls.

According to Tanner’s grandmother, the boy had been bitten about 16 times, including a bite to the main artery in his neck. The dog’s owners performed CPR on Tanner until paramedics arrived, but he would be pronounced dead at the hospital.

One of the dogs was shot on the spot by the homeowner, while the other was taken by animal control. The dogs were in a fenced in yard and are often around children, including the homeowner’s grandchildren. Police say they do not plan on pressing charges against anyone.

What a horribly tragic end for a boy who was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, and had already endured three open heart surgeries in his short life. His family says his condition never slowed him down and that he smiled non-stop. Tanner’s family is still planning on throwing his Scooby-Doo themed birthday party today at a local park.

His family is asking anyone wanting to show support to make a donation to the American Heart Association in Tanner Smith’s name. If you’d like to help out Tanner’s family directly, a Mobiloil Credit Union account #118776 has been created.
