ALBUQUERQUE NM - A 4-YEAR-OLD BOY HAS SUFFERED SEVERE INJURIES TO HIS HEAD, NECK AND FACE AFTER ENTERING AN ENCLOSURE WHERE NEIGHBORS HAD 4 PIT BULLS



A young boy was attacked by two dogs after walking into a fenced yard in a southeast neighborhood on Thursday afternoon, according to the Albuquerque Police Department.


Albuquerque police spokesman Simon Drobik said the boy is in surgery for trauma to his head, neck and face. He said there were a total of four dogs in the yard when the attack occurred.
Drobik said they responded to an animal call around 3 p.m. in the 600 block of Chama SE, near Zuni and Louisiana. There they discovered an injured boy.
“Officers are on scene conducting an investigation along with animal control,” he said.
Animal Welfare spokesman Adam Ricci said the two dogs are now in their possession and they are speaking with the owner.
He said they anticipate the dogs being surrendered and, in all likelihood, euthanized. However, there is a possibility for rehabilitation.
“We have a team that reviews cases,” Ricci said.
Animal Welfare is also investigating whether the owners will be charged, or fined, for possible violations.

What kind of latch is on a gate so a four year old child can open the gate and get inside with the pitbulls? Who was supervising this child?
