SHERMAN TX - A DAYCARE OWNER'S PIT BULL MIX "SOMEHOW" GOT INSIDE HER HOUSE AND ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY THAT HAD JUST BEEN DROPPED OFF BY HIS FATHER

(KXII) -- A 4-year-old boy is recovering after being mauled by a PIT BULL MIX  at a Sherman daycare two weeks ago.
WARNING: Some images in the video may be disturbing to some viewers.
"Max is standing there and he has blood all over his eyes, all over his face."
Gabriel Hamilton, dropped off his son Max at Reece's Preschool at around 5pm on Friday March 3rd.
It was only Max's second time going to this daycare owned by Hamilton's niece Sheriece Alexander.
But before he even got back into his car, he says he heard his son screaming.
"Wounds everywhere. The only thing I could think of was press all his wounds together to stop the bleeding and call 9-1-1."
Hamilton says Max was attacked by the homeowner's pit bull.
The dog got inside when a family member opened the door to the backyard.
Max suffered several wounds to his jaw, forehead and eyes.
He had to be taken to Dallas Children's Hospital where he underwent surgery for 3 and a half hours.
Surgeons told Max's mom, Bianca, that he had a 50 percent chance of healing properly.
"His eyes were swollen shut, he couldn't see and he asked me if he was dead."
The dog that attacked Max is now in quarantine.
The Hamilton's say they're afraid of what could happen if the dog is not put to sleep.
"No one should go through that. Not her kids, not her, not the kids that she cares for."
Alexander was given a vicious animal citation, a misdemeanor.
Hamilton and his wife both say they thought their son would be in good hands.
"There's hard feelings now. She's family but that's my family right there. He's my family."
The dog that attacked Max is in quarantine for ten days and a judge will decide what to happens to the dog next Thursday.

You must be mental to have a daycare and a freaking pit bull.

The nanny dog myth busted once again.

I agree Dayna, what kind of idiot has a killing machine as a pet? Obviously this lady knew the pit bull was dangerous because "The dog got inside when a family member opened the door to the backyard." Why is the pit bull kept outside? It's a lot easier to deal with an unruly pit bull by just leaving it in the yard. Uh oh! What happens when the pit bull accidentally gets inside? Yeah, a kid goes to the hospital.

Does BSL sound like a good idea yet? No, it's too much of an imaginary hardship on pit bull owners. Better not make them pay for their poor choices. Let everyone else pay, with their lives, their money, their insurance, and their well-being. Put the blame on the victims, pit bull advocates say. It's the right thing to do!
