dogsbite.org got some screencaps from the parent's facebook profile, they were pit bull defenders and they had a crate and rotate system to keep their 6 pit bulls/pit bull mixes from killing each other. Only two were out of their crates at a time, and those two killed their kid that day. We will see if the parents fight the euthanization of the dogs, or if they turn over all the dogs to be killed. when this happens (and it has happened a bunch of times before to people dumb enough to mix tons of pit bulls and their own small children) it goes one of those two ways."Deputies in Alachua County say a 2-year-old boy is dead and his grandmother is injured after getting attacked by dogs in an enclosed backyard at a home on Friday morning.
CBS 4 in Gainesville reported that officials responded to a home on NW 210th Avenue at around 10:30 a.m. A woman at the scene was transported to a hospital with traumatic injuries. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
A preliminary investigation revealed the child and his grandmother went to the house to care for dogs for the family. The grandmother let two of the dogs out in the yard and went inside for a moment. When came back out, the dogs and child were gone.
Officials said she found the dogs mauling the child and was injured fighting them off.
Animal services seized six dogs from the home but later found only two of the dogs were involved. The director of animal services, Ed Williams, said none of the dogs were pit bulls.
"The two that were involved in the attack were surrendered to us," Williams said. "They'll be held for 10 days rabies quarantine for the safety and welfare of grandmother who was also attacked in this incident. And so after the 10 days they'll be euthanized."
Lt. Brett Rhodenizer said they are still investigation the incident. He said they have not received any recent animal calls at the home.
“It is a tragedy for the family that is involved we are responding with detectives with crime scene forensics personnel to find exactly what happened and move from there," Rhodenizer said.
Williams said the other four dogs were in clean cages and in good condition. They are being held."
