This 4-year-old survived a pit bull attack in Farmersville.

The attack happened at the home on Windom Street near Highway 78 and 380. Afterward, dog was taken by animal control officers to the city’s animal shelter. But when Animal Control personnel went to the shelter to take the dog to Collin County Animal Shelter for quarantine, he was gone.

Police say someone broke him free. Strangely, they said it may even be the girl’s teenage brother who did it…

The pit bull showed up back at the family home Monday afternoon and is now in the custody of Collin County Animal Control for quarantine purposes.

The police department is currently looking into how the dog was released from the shelter area during the night.

Police said someone broke this pit bull out of the pound despite him attacking a small child over the weekend.

Then, about four hours later, a 5-year-old boy was attacked by another pit bull less than a mile away. This time it was a neighbor’s dog that broke its leash and bit the boy on the arm. The child was sent to a hospital in McKinney.

The owner of that dog brought it to the Farmersville animal shelter.

Police said no charges are expected in the case.

  1. No charges? How horrible it would be to actually hold the owners of vicious dogs responsible, it might actually cut down on attacks.

  2. Perhaps Texas would like to RETHINK it’s asinine legislation forbidding local Texas jurisdictions from enacting pit bull BSL? Texas has become EATEN UP (pun intended) with pit bulls ever since that stupid so-called legislation came into force. God bless these helpless babies, hostages to their parents’ and neighbors’ POOR CHOICE OF PET.
