Family pit bulls maul 2 California toddlers in separate incidents

By NBCBayArea.com

Two San Francisco Bay area toddlers were mauled by family pit bulls less than 24 hours apart, officials said Tuesday.

Both victims, one from Castro Valley and one Concord, were reported recovering in Oakland Children’s Hospital, television station KTVU reported. Neither child was identified.

The hospital would not disclose any information about the victims.

The dog in the Concord attack on Monday was euthanized, officials said.

The Castro Valley incident occurred about 2 a.m. Tuesday. Alameda Sheriff’s Department Sgt. J.D. Nelson told KTVU that a pit bull-German Shepard mix was in custody of animal control, KTVU reported.

Nelson called the youngster’s injuries worse than those suffered by the 2-year-old Concord girl on Monday.

The Concord toddler was stable but faces a lengthy recovery, KTVU said.

The dog bit her on the head, face and leg, according to Animal Control. She was treated at the scene and then airlifted to the hospital.

The euthanized dog’s tissues were being tested for rabies, officials said.

Contra Costa Animal Services Lt. Joe De Costa told KTVU officials were investigating whether the Concord family had any knowledge of the dog having an aggressive history.

If that was the case, there's a potential that they could face some criminal charges. At this point, it doesn't appear that that is the case

i love how no one post anything about the German Shepard who killed a man bout 4 months ago in Syracuse... or about the Rottweiler in Albany who killed his owner this past fall...

Its the owners that need to raise he animal right. They have no bad blood, no dogs do. Its all how they were raised, an also if people bothered to learn the type of household that is appropriate for certain types of animals, shit like this wouldn't happen. Any House hold with small child bout 5 yrs of younger, shouldn't have any type of large dog unless it was still a puppy, by large i mean any dog over 20 lbs.

not the dogs fault people just want a dog to have one without knowing the responsibility, and because of these stupid people the animals have o suffer. Yes its said that he toddlers died, any death is, but the animals are not at fault here at all.

So true, not sure why people keep blaming the dogs. You make a good point about not learning about what type of dog is good for their family. People truly need to do research and find out the dogs needs and understand how to treat each dog.
killing must stop
