3-Year-Old Boy Mauled To Death By Wild Dogs At Pittsburgh Zoo

November 5. 2012

 

Yesterday, a three year old toddler was mauled to death by 11 African Painted dogs, after he fell into the enclosure at the Pittsburgh Zoo in Pennsylvania. Zoo employees were unable to reach the boy until it was too late. Police were forced to shoot and kill one of the most aggressive dogs that would not back away from the child. Head of the Pittsburgh Zoo, Barbara Baker stated, "The keepers tried everything they could do. They responded immediately when visitors alerted them to the fact that a child was in the yard."

This horrific, preventable tragedy will undoubtedly result in lawsuits, which are richly deserved for this safety and security lapse. This zoo needs to be shutdown until it is truly safe, lest another tragedy occurs. The Judiciary Report sends its sincerest condolences to the little boy's family.
