Dog Bites Child

There is a little boy from central Illinois we have been following who was brutally attacked by his pets last month. Four-year-old Tyson Winter was attacked by the family's 3 dogs in his back yard while his dad ran inside to use the restroom. He was cut over 30 times and received over 100 stitches.

We showed the pictures this week of what the little boy looked like when it happened. Wow, it was a bad attack. I couldn't help thinking about my own kids. We don't have a dog, but my son has asked for one. What causes a family pet to attack?

The little boy's mom says he wakes up screaming in fear at night. Poor little guy. I guess it's a good reminder not to leave kids alone with dogs. But It's still hard to imagine a child's own dog attacking.

Is anyone else surprised this would happen? Does anyone have any experience with something like this?
