MIDLAND CITY AL - MOTHER'S PET PIT BULLS ATTACKED THEIR 12-YEAR-OLD SON - THE CHILD WAS LIFE FLIGHTED TO UAB WITH SEVERE INJURIES OVER MOST OF HIS BODY

His mom spoke exclusively to WDHN, telling us her son is an animal lover and they trusted the family's three pit bulls, until they turned on her son nearly killing him. 
According to the mother, Kaden was attempting to break up a fight between two puppies when one adult dog attacked. 
Kaden ran outside to try to escape the dog and all three dogs then followed him outside and started attacking and mauling the boy. 
However, neighbors told us a different story. 
They say the two children were left alone in the home with the three dogs locked in the bathroom. 
Allegedly Kaden opened the door to use the restroom and the dogs started the attack. 
The dogs drug him around the yard before a near by neighbor Bailey Buchanan heard screams and came to help. 
A pregnant Buchanan kicked and distracted the dogs so Kaden could get away. 
He was lifeflighted to UAB yesterday and immediately underwent surgery. 
He is expected to be in the hospital for several weeks and faces many additional surgeries. 
All of his extremities are severely damaged and he also suffers from facial damage. 
Two dogs were shot and one was killed by Midland City Police. 
Neighbors tell us the homeowners are holding the other two dogs inside the home, but the mother told WDHN the dogs are gone. 
We will continue to investigate this story and keep you updated on the health of Kaden.

Another gold star day for Wigglebutt. I know this sounds awful, but while I won’t give a penny to any humane association or SPCA until they get their heads out of their rectums on the subject of pit bulls, I’d gladly donate to help buy enough pink stuff to euthanize the lot of them.
