FORT WORTH (AP) – Authorities say four pit bulls blamed for mauling a North Texas toddler have been euthanized.
Fort Worth Animal Control officials said Tuesday that the dogs will be tested for rabies over the attack on the 18-month-old boy. Cook Children’s Medical Center on Wednesday declined to release details on the boy’s condition.
The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office has said the boy’s grandfather kept seven pit bulls at the residence near Lakeside. Officials believe the youngster was attacked Monday when he crawled through a doggie door and into the yard.
The boy’s grandmother, shortly after the mauling, was arrested during a scuffle with a neighbor who had complained about the dogs. Lena Grace Brown has been charged with assault and bodily injury. She’s free on $2,500 bond.
