    North Carolina Boy Killed by Father's Pit Bulls

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 17) - An 8-year-old boy was mauled to death by his father's four pit bulls, and prosecutors were considering charges against the father ranging from child neglect to murder.

    Roddie Philip Dumas Jr. was attacked in the fenced-in yard of his father's home Friday. Neighbors and a postal worker who heard the boy's screams rushed to the scene.

    The boy's father, Roddie Philip Dumas Sr., 29, and his girlfriend, were inside the house but did not come outside until the dogs had already severely injured the boy, officials said.

    "One had him on his neck. Two had him on the side. And one had him on the leg," said Edward Threatt, a neighbor. "They were pulling on him just like you do a rag doll."

    A letter carrier threw his mailbag and then a wooden block at the dogs, which then ran away, Threatt said. But neighbors and police said the father then came outside and told the letter carrier to get off his property.

    The boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.

    I hope it's a hoax......with a name Dumas (dumb as..)(not a slander against any of you named Dumas either-just hoping it's a hoax is all). What a tragity if it's real. About just over a year or two ago I think an 11 yr old boy was killed here by his families mixed wolf breed dog. Some woman backed over her toddler in an SUV this week killing him, I don't know how you ever get over something like that.

  12. Please not ever leave your child alone with any breed of dog. Especially a dog your kid has no chance of fighting off.

    This makes me sick.
