FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The parents of a 19-month old child, brutally attacked by a pack of dogs in Lake Worth, have been arrested.

Thursday deputies with the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office arrested Chance Walker Sr. 26, and Patricia Walker 23. Both have been charged with Injury to a Child.

The couple was taken into custody, without incident, at a house in the 900 block of Hackamore Street in White Settlement.

Four dogs attacked little Chance Walker Jr. on January 30. The child was rushed to Cook Children’s Medical Center with serious injuries and ultimately had to undergo surgery to reattach an ear.

CBS 11 News learned that in the last year there had been eight ‘dog-related’ police calls made on animals at the address where the dog attack occurred.

Before Walker Jr. was released from the hospital, a Child Protective Services (CPS) investigation urged that the state be given temporary managing conservatorship from the parents. The request was granted.

Chance Walker Jr. remains in foster care. All four of the dogs blamed for mauling have been euthanized.

Chance Walker Sr. and Patricia Walker remain in the Tarrant County Jail, each with a $100,000 bond.

Conviction of a second-degree Injury to a Child charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

      Probably are. Wait, we’re in Texas, not Arkansas or West Virginia. They’re probably only cousins.

    2. Booger says:

      Look like tried and true Republicans, to me. Maybe I SHOULD support birth control… Wait! Wait! I’m a Commie Liberal! An’ ah be NOT on de welfare….

      1. BadPenny says:

        Actually, they look more like the drugged out OWS “occupy trash crowd” sleeping on the and streets pooping on cars….and I don’t mean the dogs.

      2. dave says:

        nope, Obami Democrats on welfare….can’t you tell

    3. j says:

      they definitely look like a couple of real winners, thats for sure…

  2. Brandy says:

    Does no one edit your pieces??!! “Sheriff’s”?? Really.

    1. Egg On Your Face says:

      It’s supposed to be “Sheriff’s”, moron. There is one sheriff and that is the SHERIFF’S OFFICE. Capisce? “Welcome to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Official website.” That was copied from the web site of the SHERIFF’S office.

      LOL. Epic Spelling Police FAIL.

    Just looking at the mug shots one can see some justification for sterilization. The world probably needs no more of these..

    1. Dr. Werner Klopek says:

      Something Hitler pushed for. Maybe he had a few good ideas after all…

  4. Truth Promotion says:

    Stupid and incorrect. Regardless of what you think of these people they didn’t attack their kid. Neglected perhaps. But you can’t fake charges against someone. It’s like expired inspection sticker is now considered a moving violation. Well no it isn’t because it isn’t a moving violation. There’s no magic. They didn’t injure their kid nor did they intentionally set him up to be injured. Period.

    1. An Angry Mommy says:

      Really??? Let me guess you too are a “victim” to the justice system. These parents were high on meth new this child could get out and that he was in danger and did not one thing to protect him read the CPS affidavit above. The crime here is that they ever gave him back to these jokes of a parent.

      1. WeArentAllLikeYou says:

        If they were “high on meth” they wouldn’t be asleep now would they?

      2. DDR says:

        They also wouldn’t be that friggin’ fat…

      3. Colby Bauer says:

        Actually, according to, the REAL news station, “CPS reported that Patricia Walker tested positive for meth the day of the attack, and that her husband refused a drug test.” CBS 11 reporters must have been too busy following story leads on Khloe Kardashian to pay attention to the harder stories. LOL. Losers. CBS11 sucks. GOOOOOODBYE!

    2. SilverQueen says:

      They set up the child by default when they decided it was okay to keep vicious dogs around a toddler. They also set him up when they decided to nap and not supervise the child. Period.

    3. altha says:

      After saying all that Truth Promotion, the mother and father are where they belong in JAIL. This baby went through all this pain because of mother/dad neglecte.

    4. Atheist Lawyer says:

      You need to read the Texas criminal code that defines injury to a child before making ignorant comments.

    5. Atheist Lawyer says:

      That was meant for Truth Promotion, by the way, who also needs to read up on the traffic code and the definition of a moving violation.

  5. Deliverance Banjo Boy says:

    They look like the poor white trash hicks at the opening of the movie, Idiocracy.

  6. Forrest Gump says:

    Jesus Christ, they look like they have a collective IQ of 45, and I’m being generous.

  7. NiteNurse says:

    Sigh! It seems that many children are born in to horrible situations. I hope someone can help the poor kid and make his life better.

  8. piano player says:

    What breed of dogs were they? Would I be so bold as to say pitt bulls or Is that a no no?

  9. Ben Dover says:

    I just couldn’t imagine what breed of dogs those were?
    Article doesn’t say.
    Let me guess……

  10. hahahahaha says:

    White trash indeed,pit bulls are status symbols for white trash and ni66ers,when was the last time a pack of poodles mauled someone?Outlaw the breed and hold people responsible for their dogs actions.
