Investigators said the boy was found dead after six bulldog-boxer mixes attacked him at Collins’ home in Emanuelville. Collins surrendered to sheriff’s deputies two days after they obtained warrants for his arrest on charges of involuntary manslaughter and keeping unconfined, dangerous animals at his home. On the day of Collins’ arrest, five of his dogs were euthanized. The sixth dog was stolen from the county pound prior to Collins surrendering.

it is very clear that these dogs had a history of being dangerous and the owner was very aware of it and failed to act,i hope all pet owners take note of this!! because you are going to be held accountable for your stupid pets(dogs) action

I feel like he should show some sympathy for the mother of the child. He knew how dangerous the dogs were why did he have them out with no one watching over the dogs.
