Louisiana girl, 7, is mauled to death by neighbor’s pit bull while playing outside: Dog’s owner, 20, is charged with homicide for letting bloodthirsty pet roam freely, as victim’s mom says: ‘My heart is shattered’
A seven-year-old Louisiana girl was mauled to death by a free-roaming pit bull while playing outside a relative’s home.
Sadie Davila, of East Baton Rouge, was rushed to the hospital after the dog attacked her on Friday night, and later passed away from her grave injuries, WAFB reports.
The dog’s owner, Erick Chinchilla Lopez, 20, a neighbor of Sadie’s relative, was arrested and charged with negligent homicide for failing to confine or restrain the dog.
According to the arrest report, Lopez’s home didn’t even have a fence or other barrier to keep the dog from roaming the streets.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office said Sadie’s relative tried to rescue her from the dog, but was not able to stop the vicious attack.
A pitt bull allowed to roam free killed a child.
That was inevitable, to be honest.
I keep telling you, I see a loose pitt bull, I’m going to shoot it.
This is why.
