On Saturday, a 4-year-old girl, in southern Dallas, was attacked by a dog and died.
Close to 8 a.m., in the 5600 block of Bluffman Drive, authorities responded to the attack, by the crossing of Bonnie View Road and Simpson Stuart Rd.
Officials say that the dog had bitten the child several times. The girl was taken to a hospital where she succumbed to her wounds.
Neighbor Michael Pennington stated that he called 911 to report the attack. He thinks that 3 dogs, a toddler, and no adults were in the residence when the child was mauled by more than one of the dogs. Pennington says he is having a hard time dealing with what he witnessed.
The dog has now been placed in the custody of Dallas Animal Services, authorities say. Information on the breed of the dog or how the attack took place hasn’t been released.
An investigation is continuing.
