MA boy, 7, mauled by pit bulls, cops say

WCVB									SOURCE WCVB

The city police reported that from July 1, 2011 to the end of that calendar year, 36 pit bulls were placed in possession of the pound and 12 were euthanized.

"To have a dog not controlled, it's only a 7-year-old", a neighbor said. "And the next thing I go over and both dogs had him and dragging him around in the yard". "What kind of person would have a dog that's not tamed enough?"

A preliminary investigation suggests that the child entered a fenced in area where two pit bulls were present, and that the child was then attacked.

Reports said a witness tried to fight off the dogs, but they would not listen.

Authorities received a call about the attack at around 6pm and arrived on scene to discover the deceased child, the release states. "I seen the mom earlier and she was in shock you know, trying to wake up from this nightmare". "She thought someone got shot".

One of the pit bills escaped the enclosed area following the attack, according to the DA's office, and was later located and put down.

"Lowell, shots fired, the dog is hit, it's still coming at me", the officer told the operator.

"The kid went into the fence, as sad as that is", a neighbor said.

On Sunday night, friends and family held a vigil in the driveway where the attack occurred. The other dog is now being held by animal control officials, according to the Boston Globe.
