Samuel ZamudioColton, CA – A 2-year-old boy had his face eaten off by his grandmother’s pit bulls and now she and the boy’s uncle have been charged with his death.

After police received a 911 call around 5:30 p.m. that someone had been killed by a dog, they arrived at a home on the 700 block of West Citrus Street to find 2-year-old Samuel Zamudio suffering from extensive bite wounds to his head and neck. He was rushed to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

“It was ugly. His face was all eaten up. He was eaten from the face. He had no clothes,” said a woman who rents a room inside the home.

The woman said she and the Zamudio’s uncle, 23-year-old Marco Zamudio, were watching the boy, his older brother and her two children when he suddenly <air quotes>disappeared</air quotes>. She said they looked for him for about 20 minutes before looking in the backyard and finding his grandmother’s dogs had used him as a chew toy.

“He jumped out of the window, I’m guessing to play with the dogs, and the dogs grabbed him,” said a neighbor. Five pit bull-mix dogs were removed from the residence and taken to a local shelter, although it has not been reported how many of these dogs participated in the attack.

“It was an accident. We didn’t know. We thought he was in the room playing,” the woman said. Prosecutors don’t agree, and have arrested the boy’s uncle and his grandmother, 42-year-old Eustulia Zamudio. Both have been charged with child endangerment leading to death.
