A 5-year old boy was killed on Sunday when the pet of a family friend attacked him, severely wounding his head and neck.

The boy–whose name hasn’t been released yet–was staying with friends of his parents in Jessieville, Arkansas, while the parents worked to salvage and rebuild their home in Moore, Oklahoma. The family’s Bullmastiff reportedly became aggressive when the boy got upset and started to cry and attacked him; the owner says she tried to pull the dog off but was too late. The animal ran away after the attack but was later shot dead by a friend of the owners.

The heartbreaking story comes as a shock to the community of Moore, where everyone is working to rebuild their lives after the deadly tornado system that rocked the town last month.

“To me, it’s heartbreaking,” Garland County sheriff’s Deputy Scott Hinojosa said. “I’ve got a 5-year-old daughter. You can’t imagine what this family and friends are going through right now.”

Authorities are considering pressing charges on the family, but no decision has been made yet.

        You Must have no KIDS!!!!! Putting an animals life over a Human’s KID is WRONG. No matter how you look at. The ATTACK Dog owner’s always blame the owner of the dogs and not the fact that the nature of these are to attack and kill if they feel threaten, albeit the threat is from a baby or small child. You never hear a maltiese, Shitsu,chiuaua or dogs of the same breed that have attacked and killed kids. It is always bull dogs and dobermans. IT is time to wake up, certain dogs should not be allowed to be kept as house pets!!

      Don’t be such an buttwipe. Dogs kill kid less frequently than lighting strikes kill people.

      • monique

        SO, What you saying is that is OK for dogs to KILL KIDS because the number of killing is less than # of kids killed by lightning!!! Do you have any kids and did you really think before you made this comment?????????? I wonder how you would feel if that was your KID???????/

    I agree with whomever made the comment “these bulldogs should not be allowed to be kept as pets to the public” We hear of to many attacks of these bulldog, my own daughter was attacked by a bulldog, just riding her bike. I think it should be against the law to own a bulldog for a pet.

    Many of these comments are without merit. It is not the dog so much as it is the way it is trained and treated. It is very sad that this had to happen, and there is no denying that. I can speak to experience on this. Last August I got in the middle of the two dogs hashing it out and both dogs weighed 150lbs combined. One was my dog, which was a boxer American bulldog, and the other a Lab. Key word there is LAB. And the funny thing it was the LAB that started it! They were both great dogs and miss them dearly. I ended up in the ER and recovery was not fun. I don’t blame them I blame the situation. You never know what is going to set them off. I could not tell you how many times I have been bitten by an ankle bitter. In fact those dogs are worse than large dogs. But you never hear about the small dogs because they are somehow better than a pit or a bulldog. I would have a rottie, pittie, or bulldog in a heartbeat over a little yappy ankle bitter. It is up to a responsible pet owner to pay attention to their animals, to know what situations make the dog or cat uncomfortable. I also have two cats and I have been scratched and bitten by both of them more times than that of a dog. At the end of the day they are still animals and no matter what kind of dog it is, be it small or large, there are things written in their DNA that time can never domesticate. So don’t be so quick to blame the dog. It is just another way for people to not be held accountable for their short comings and irresponsibility.

    I hate dog people defending these useless breeds. Sorry but a golden retriever would never do this.

    • Gab

      I am pretty sure these “useless breeds” would say the same thing about you.
