OAKDALE CA - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A 3-YEAR-OLD BOY IN THE FACE - HIS PARENTS TOLD OFFICERS THEY'D BEEN DOG-SITTING THE PIT

A 3-year-old Oakdale boy was taken to a hospital Tuesday after he was bitten in the face by a PIT BULL.
Oakdale police and animal control officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in the 200 block of North Fourth Street after a witness reported seeing a man beating the dog, said animal control officer Danielle Merritt.
When they arrived, the dog had been chained up.
The boy’s parents told officers they’d been dog-sitting the pit bull for a friend for about a week, Merritt said. The dog bit the child when the parents briefly left them unattended together in front of the complex, Merritt said.
The boy suffered two lacerations above his eye and one underneath, Merritt said. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital.
The dog will be quarantined at Oakdale Animal Shelter for 10 days. The child’s parents said they didn’t have contact information for the dog’s owner.
“If the actual owner does not reclaim him, he will be euthanized,” Merritt said.

Yeah, they were watching the pit bull for a friend. Uh huh. And they don't have contact information for the friend. Right. And the guy was beating the pit bull? Because we all do that when we're pet sitting a pit bull.

Sounds like these morons brought home a pit bull, expected it to be a nanny pit bull, and are upset that it didn't work out.

What kind of idiot leaves a 3-year-old outside, unattended IN FRONT OF THE COMPLEX? It doesn't sound like the kid was right outside the door. Even so, the kid should be removed from these idiots!
