4-YEAR-OLD boy dies after dog attack WHEN BOY CLIMBS OVER FENCE

This afternoon around 5:15 PM, deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were called to a home in the 5700 block of Pinehurst just west of Conroe involving a 4 year-old boy that had been bitten by a pit bull.

When deputies arrived they found that the child had serious injuries and was going to be taken by helicopter to a Houston Hospital. Investigators with the Major Crimes Unit learned that the child had climbed a chain link fence into a neighbor’s yard and though the dog was chained was attacked and bitten by the dog. The victim’s 9 year old sister pulled the boy to safety and called for help.

The victim did not survive the injuries and died at the hospital. Animal Control officers came to the scene and took custody of the dog.

The investigation is on-going as investigators complete interviews and examines evidence. Criminal charges are not anticipated.

The child has been identified as Christian Germanous.

    Many people are judging the mother of this child but she is a young mother and a good mother. What happened was horrible but she is a good person and a good mom. Blame is easy but compassion and love are what are needed.

    Why do people continue to own this breed? They’ve been ruined. Very rare to see another breed of dog attack and go for the kill or do this kind of damage. Every dog can snap, but when pit bulls snap people get seriously hurt or killed. When’s the last time a lab or golden retriever killed people?…….. Exactly

    As for the family, I pray for them in this hard time. May God bring them comfort.
