CONVERSE, TX – A 4-year-old boy was mauled to death by the family dog while playing in the backyard of his home.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Noah Trevino was playing alone in the backyard of his home Sunday afternoon when the dog attacked.

The dog, described as a “mixed large breed” was tied up at the time and it is believed the boy got too close to the animal while playing.

“It appears that the child may have gotten too close to the dog,” Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said. “One of the relatives of the child actually looked out into the backyard and saw that the dog had his mouth around the little boy’s neck and was shaking him.”

Family members were able to get the dog off of Noah and began administering CPR. Unfortunately, Noah was declared dead after being airlifted to the hospital. He had just celebrated his fourth birthday two weeks prior.

Bexar County Animal Control took the dog for an overnight observation and to be tested for rabies.…

JONESVILLE, VA — An 8-day-old baby in Virginia was mauled to death in its bassinet by the family’s wolf-dog hybrid.

On Wednesday morning, the parents of the infant girl heard her crying in her room. When they went in to investigate, they found the dog standing over her.

“The child, according to the statements, was in a bassinet. There was blood in the bassinet where the dog had attacked the child. (There were) very serious injuries to the upper body, and the head,” Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons said.

The infant was rushed to the hospital by her father but would die later that afternoon. The 3-year-old wolf-dog hybrid was euthanized after being taken to the pound.

Social services have been called to check on two other children living in the home with two other dogs.

Parsons said he believes it is reckless to leave any child unattended with an animal, and is checking if any charges can be filed against the girls’ parents.

“I’m concerned about whether the child was protected, so the tough part for me is who is in the right and who is in the wrong, and you hate to charge parents that are grieving over a child, but at the same time you have to consider the rights of the child,” he said.…

BALTIMORE, MD — A man has was sentenced to three years in prison after being convicted of tying a cinder block to his girlfriend’s dog before tossing him into a reservoir.

In February of last year, a pit bull mix named Roscoe was found dead in the Liberty Reservoir tied to a cinder block. The dog had been microchipped, so investigators quickly identified the woman who owned the dog.

After talking with the woman, it was determined that her boyfriend, Anthony “Tony” Muniz, was responsible for the dog’s death and he was charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

According to prosecutors, Muiz stole the dog from his girlfriend and took it to a rescue group claiming that it was a stray, then re-adopted Roscoe as his own.

Of course, he had no intention of keeping the animal since he ended up tying a cinder block to the dog before chucking him into the water. Why would he do this? According to prosecutors, it was to send a message to his girlfriend.…

DUNCAN, OK — A  3-year-old girl was mauled to death by a pit bull five days after her father brought the dog home to the family.

Police were called to a home Sunday afternoon after receiving a report about a young girl being attacked by a dog.

When police arrived, they found 3-year-old Rylee Marie severely injured and the dog, named Remington, in the backyard.

When Remington charged one of the officers, the dog was shot and killed.

The girl’s father, Jason Dodge, said he was visiting his brother when Marie was attacked while being watched by her grandmother.

When he got a call that Marie had been attacked by the dog, he rushed home and found his mother, who was also injured,  still trying to wrestle Marie away from Remington.

Dodge eventually got Marie away from the animal and attempted to get her to the hospital.

“I picked her up and carried her, I ran out the front door, and I threw her in the passenger seat,” he said. “I went to go to the hospital and then the ambulance came.…

FALMOUTH, MA – A man had to stab the family pit bull to death after it began mauling his 1-year-old daughter in what police are calling an unprovoked attack.

It happened Sunday morning when the man heard screaming coming from the kitchen, and discovered the family dog, a pit bull terrier, had latched on to his 1-year-old daughter’s face.

When the man could not get the dog to off his daughter, he ran to an adjacent room to grab a gun. After trying to shoot the dog and discovering the gun was unloaded, the man used a knife to stab the dog to death.

The girl was airlifted to the hospital where she underwent numerous emergency surgeries and blood transfusions. She is expected to survive the attack but family members say she still has a long way to go, including future plastic surgery procedures.

Police say the dog did not have a history of violence, and that the attack on the girl seems to have been unprovoked.

The father’s uncle, who lives across the street, said the dog was adopted five years ago and has always gotten along with the girl.…

ARJAY, KY – A man has been charged after his two pit bulls mauled a couple Christmas Eve morning, killing the woman.

According to the Bell County Sheriff’s Department, Johnny Saylor woke up Christmas Eve morning and started to walk outside his house to find his wife, 66-year-old Lorraine Saylor, who normally woke up before him and spread bird seed in the yard.

When he went out to the porch, he was immediately attacked by two pit bulls that belonged to his neighbor, 42-year-old Johnny Lankford. The dogs latched on to Johnny’s arm and tried dragging him to the ground.

Luckily, Johnny’s brother lives next door and heard the commotion. He stepped out and began yelling at the dogs, causing them to release their hold on Johnny. This gave Johnny enough time to run back inside and grab a .22 caliber pistol.

When he returned outside, Johnny shot one of the dogs in the chest after it lunged at him. This caused the injured dog to run from the scene.

When Johnny made his way to the front of the house, he found Lorraine.…

HART COUNTY, GA — A grandmother is facing murder charges after her two pit bulls mauled her 20-month-old grandson to death.

According to Hart County officials, 70-year-old Sandra Bowers Adams was babysitting her grandson at her home on Tuesday.

Adams told GBI agents that they were going back inside the house when her pit bulls ran out the back door, knocking Adams down and attacking the boy.

She eventually got the dogs off of her grandson and rush him to the hospital, after stopping to pick up the boy’s mother who was nearby, but it was too late.

By time he arrived at Reddy Urgent Care, he was pronounced dead from several bites and tears to his head and neck.

After an extensive investigation and interviews with family members, Adams was charged second-degree murder, second-degree cruelty to children and felony involuntary manslaughter.

Part of the reason why the district attorney was comfortable with these charges may have to do with the fact that Adams has been cited multiple times by the Hartwell Police Department under a city ordinance maintaining disorderly animals.…

MIAMI, FL – A man is facing animal cruelty charges after he killed his mother’s pets after his parents refused to let him have $50, say police.

Last Thursday, 28-year-old Jimmy Cardona threatened his mother over the phone and sent a text to his father demanding the money “or something bad was going to happen.”

His father ignored the message and, as a result for not giving him the money he wanted, Cardona proved his threat was not groundless.

After leaving the home and returning hours later, Cardona’s mother found her pet chicken cut into pieces and strewn all over her bed. In the backyard she found the lifeless body of her Pomeranian.

Police were called and once at the residence, Cardona’s father showed them a video his son had sent that showed the dead chicken scattered on the bed. The Pomeranian was alive when the video was recorded.

When police caught up with Cardona, he denied killing the animals and claimed his mother had killed the chicken herself for religious purposes.…

Baby Mauled To Death By Family Pit Bull

May 9, 2017 at 2:00 pm by  

LAS VEGAS, NV – A 6-month-old girl has died after she was mauled by the family pit bull.

It happened on Monday afternoon as Kaniko Dao Tsuda-Saelee was in her baby walker near the dog.

For reasons unknown at this time, the “pit bull-terrier-type mix” began biting the baby.

The mother of the child, who was the only other person in the house, managed to stop the attack and call for help.

Unfortunately, the baby suffered “significant injuries” and was pronounced dead at Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center.

The dog was taken to the Animal Foundation where it may be euthanized. Animal Control says they have had no previous interaction with the family about the dog.

Child abuse and neglect detectives are investigating, which is protocol whenever a child dies, but police say this looks like a tragic accident.

“This is something a lot of families can learn from,” said LVMPD Officer Larry Hadfield. “It’s an absolute tragedy, and regardless how trusting you are of your animals in your house, you have to make sure you are supervising.”…

PONCE INLET, FL – A man has been arrested after he beat his 9-month-old Labrador retriever to death because the dog made a mess in his house while he was at work.

Police responded to the home of 43-year-old Travis Archer after a neighbor called just before midnight Saturday to report hearing him beating the crap out of his dog.

When officers arrived, they could hear what sounded like Archer punching his 9-month-old puppy. Archer told them he was just discipling the dog for tearing up his house while he was at work.

When police went inside the home, they found torn papers and and CD cases on the ground and a large hole in the drywall where Archer allegedly threw the puppy.

When they went out to the backyard, they found Ponce lying on its side with its head resting against a fence. The dog appeared to have been gagged, say police, and he was bleeding severely from its mouth.

Officers said they also found blood stains all over the fence next to the dog’s body and a bloody knot rope.…

LILBURN, GA – A 7-year-old boy is recovering after two pit bulls attacked him and ripped off both of his ears.

On Christmas Eve, 7-year-old Ethan Fain was playing with his dog in the back yard of his grandmother’s house when two of the neighbor’s pit bulls pulled him over a fence and began mauling him.

His mother heard his screams and jumped the fence to stop the attack, but by that time, one of Ethan’s ears was hanging off and the other had been ripped off completely.

Ethan was rushed to the hospital where he would spend a few weeks recovering from 300 stitches across his back, neck and shoulders. Doctors were able to sew one of his ears back in place, but have sewn his right ear into the skin of his abdomen for a future reattachment surgery.

He has been home from the hospital for a few weeks but still needs regular medical care, including future reconstructive surgeries and seeing doctors for his post-traumatic stress disorder.

“Ethan still has nightmares and panic attacks related to the attack,” his mother said.…
