NEEDLES, SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY CA - PARENTS WHO WERE ON COUNTY FELONY PROBATION FOR CHILD NEGLECT WHEN THEIR 5-YEAR-OLD WAS ATTACKED BY THEIR "FAMILY DOG" WAS STILL ON PROBATION WHEN THEIR 2-YEAR-OLD WAS SEVERELY ATTACKED BY THE SAME DOG... THEY LIED ABOUT THE ATTACK!!!

Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Needles couple this week after their child was attacked by THE FAMILY DOG, authorities said.
James Gordon Nagel Jr., 46, and Tiffany Marie Jensen, 24, were arrested Wednesday, Aug. 8, on suspicion of willful cruelty to a child after their 2-year-old son suffered a severe dog bite, according to a San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department statement.
According to authorities, Nagel and Jensen on July 31 took the child to the Colorado River Medical Center, telling hospital staff there that he had been attacked by a stray dog on a beach. The child was flown to a hospital in Las Vegas for surgery and the medical center notified law enforcement about the incident, authorities said.
Investigators learned that it was the family’s dog that bit the 2-year-old, and that the same animal had attacked the couple’s 5-year-old daughter in 2017.
According to the sheriff’s statement, the couple was “well aware of the family dog’s aggressiveness, but did not take the proper measure to protect their children.” Nagel and Jensen were on county felony probation for child neglect at the time of both alleged dog bites, police added.

CPS needs to take these children. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think they will be better off in foster care than with their pit loving parents.

This article doesn't list breed of dog so I guess it's left to my imagination. Hopefully, CPS will take these children or maybe there's a family member who can raise them. Obviously, the dog is more important to the parents than their children. I hope they get jail time. No doubt, the American citizens will be paying for the helicopter ride and all the medical care for the child.
