LUZEC NAD CIDLINOU CZECH REPUBLIC - A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS MAULED TO DEATH BY 1 OR MORE LARGE DOGS AS HE WAS WITH HIS FATHER WHO WAS TALKING TO THE OWNER AT HIS RESIDENCE

The house where the incident happened
A five-year-old boy has been attacked and killed by a pack of vicious dogs as his father chatted to the owner of the animals, according to reports.
The little boy, whose name has not been released, had gone with his father who was visiting a friend named only as Pavel.
The five-year-old's dad and Pavel were talking in front of the house and the gate to the garden had been left open.  Witnesses said the boy ran into the garden where the man kept his six dogs - four of which were caged but the other two were running free
The dogs that killed the boy
The youngster ran to the bottom of the garden but one dog apparently followed him and suddenly attacked, biting the boy on the neck, before the other dogs - some of which escaped from their cages - joined in.
The boy's father and Pavel ran to the boy's aid but found his lifeless body by the side of a barn.
Paramedics quickly arrived at the scene by helicopter but they were too late to help the boy as he was already dead.
The tragedy happened in the Czech village of Luzec nad Cidlinou.
Neighbours said Pavel's dogs had caused a lot of problems and had allegedly escaped from their cages before killing a pig and another dog.
One woman who did not want to be named said that she had also been attacked by the dogs in the past.
Pavel, a welder, said that three of the dogs were his while the rest belonged to his partner Zaneta who was the mother of two young children, aged three and four.

He said that the dogs had got used to being around young children and were normally friendly, adding: "I don't understand how it could happen."
Local police are investigating the incident and say that the dog, or dogs, found to have killed the boy would be put down.

Lužec nad Cidlinou is a village in the Hradec Králové District of the Czech Republic. It is known in the district for its high level of unemployment.Wikipedia

The dogs in the bottom photo resemble Belgian Malinois, a working breed often used as police and military attack dogs, and are not generally thought of as suitable pet breeds. When the movie Max came out, breed clubs warned about how the dog in the movie may seem cute, but that they have extremely high energy demands and can become destructive and dangerous if not owned by an experienced person.

It's not really a good idea to have multiple dogs of that type if you simply want pet animals. Having several big dogs in general seems like a bad idea, as dogs are known to gang up on whatever is being bitten, even if the one being attacked is their own owner or a child of the owner.

People need to make better choices about what breeds they obtain. If just one dog isn't enough for you, get small ones. It's much safer.

You can't look badass with a flock of teacup poodles. I'm guessing that's why people get dangerous breeds.
