Dog mauls 5 year old boy in Santa Elena town




Wednesday, April 30, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A 5 year old boy from Santa Elena town, Cayo was viciously attacked by dog this afternoon.

According to reports received, the little boy, identified as Christopher Jones was playing in a yard on Zaiden Street in Santa Elena town when he was mauled by the dog.

One person who witnessed the aftermath of the mauling said that the boy was bitten and torn up badly, mostly in his head.  The witness describe the aftermath as “horrifying.”

The attack, according to reports, was so bad that the boy’s scalp was ripped and he had several holes in his face, apparently teeth marks from the dog.

The little boy, an Infant I studwnt of the Santa Elena R.C. School, was rushed to the San Ignacio community hospital for medical treatment.

Late this evening, he was being prepared for transfer to the Karl Heunser Memorial Hospital in Belize City for further medical treatment.

Information received says that the dog was euthanized shortly after the attack.

    When will we learn? This should never happen. Parents and dog owners only need to be aware and take precautions. It is not the poor babies fault, nor the dogs. Take responsibility!

  2. The dog’s owner is responsible and should be held accountable. But as usual, he probably will not be. And to Johnny Lopez, you are an ignorant racist. I bet you are one of those gang bangers we see walking their monsters up and down the street.
