Las Vegas Child Killed By Neighbor's Dog
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Las Vegas child is dead after a vicious
dog attack by a pit bull mix. The family of a nine-year-old boy is grieving after
the child was attacked and killed by a dog while he was walking in the
East Valley on Wednesday afternoon. Family members say the boy was walking
to a friend’s house near his home when the attack occurred. The
victim’s grandmother found the child badly wounded on the ground
and the dog covered in blood. The nine-year-old boy was rushed to Sunrise
Hospital Trauma where he was pronounced dead.
The dog was euthanized Thursday morning, and his owner faces civil and
criminal consequences. The attacker was a 3-year-old pit bull mix named
Left Eye and had previously attacked children and other dogs in the area,
according to neighbors. A witness said they had filed a police report
just three weeks ago after Left Eye attacked her child and dog. If this
dog was involved in another attack just three weeks ago, the owner could
be charged with criminal action. Neighbors also say the dog was seen running
loose this year.
