FONTANA CA - A NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE AND MAULED A 10-YEAR-OLD BOY WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL

A 10-year-old boy suffered severe injuries to his face and head area after being attacked by a pit bull while walking home from school in Fontana, according to the Fontana Police Department.

On May 19 at about 2:37 p.m., police were notified about the incident in the 14800 block of Woodland Drive.
Officers with the Fontana Animal Services Team (FAST) responded to the location, and paramedics treated the child at the scene and transported him to a local hospital. The child is expected to survive.
The preliminary investigation showed that the child was walking home from school when the pit bull got loose. It is believed the owner's children may have left the gate of their residence unlatched after taking out garbage cans, police said.
The pit bull's owner, Richard Contreras, was cited for having a dog at large, which is a misdemeanor.
The PIT BULL  was taken to the Riverside County Animal Shelter for a 10-day mandatory quarantine. Police are not aware of any other violent incidents involving this dog.

The children may have left a gate open, but the irresponsible pit bull owner did not check to make sure the gates were closed before letting his mauler out.

OOPSIE! Sorry kid! The nanny dog was just trying to help you across the street, keep you off the grass, and make sure you didn't forget to do your homework.
