…only vicious actions.
A pit bull fatally mauled a 5-year-old boy staying at a southern Texas home with relatives, authorities said.
The boy was pronounced dead at the scene Wednesday. Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace Rosa Trevino said the condition of the child’s body suggested there was no way emergency responders could have saved his life.
Authorities were trying to determine whether the dog had been confined and how it came in contact with the boy, Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said. Trevino declined to identify the boy pending notification of his mother, who lives in Washington state.

Gee, nice dogs. Shame if we banned ‘em, huh?
