Dog Pack Mauls Child

A small child was nearly killed by a pack of dogs in Montgomery County Friday.  The Winona Times reported:

A Montgomery County child is in critical condition at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson after he was attacked by six dogs while riding his bike Friday afternoon on Sawyer Road.

Sheriff Bubba Nix said deputies were on another call when they were dispatched to Sawyer Road to the incident. He said the child, who he only identified as a juvenile, was riding his bike when it is believed that six dogs attacked the child.

He said City of Winona Animal Control Officer Arlin Pearson also responded to the scene to assist in catching the dogs.

He said the child was drug off of the bike by the dogs and into a ditch where he was mauled. Nix said passersby were traveling on Sawyer Road when they saw the child’s bike in the road. He said they saw the dogs coming out the ditch and once they moved away, they saw the child.

Nix said they took hammers and sticks and used them to get the dogs away from the child. He said the child was airlifted to Jackson where he remains in the hospital. He said the dogs were taken to the Winona Veterinarian Hospital where they were euthanized. Article

Two Facebook comments provided additional information:

 I visited today and he is wrapped up like a mummy and still in a medically induced coma. (Yesterday)

The child is in critical but stable condition. He had 1 surgery yesterday but will need more. He is in a medically induced coma for now. He still needs lots of prayers. (Saturday)
The owner was not arrested since the county has no vicious dog ordinance.

Probably some more of those lovable, family-friendly pit-bulls.

Why didnt the officers immediately shoot the animals after they got them off the child ? Now they are gone. Was there a body cam used ?

I just thought I'd leave this message here for dog lovers because I think many of them don't realize that people like me exist: I hate dogs. I shoot dogs. Lots of dogs. I shoot them out of my deer stands, I've shot them in my yard, I have even shot them on the side of the road (probably illegal of course). If it is a pit bull, I'll shoot it FO SHO NUFF!

The owner will deny he owns any dogs. The owner is a PODS (Piece of Dog S**t).

Them dogs never bothered nobody. They were always sweet around kids. I just don't know what happened.

Many prayers for this poor child's healing.

For you experts, the breed was not specified. A "pack" of any breed can become dangerous.
3:17, I don't believe all your shootin' stories, but you're still a sick one.

Prayers for the child.

Lawyers and courts for the owner(s).

I despise heavy handed government, but there are too many problems because of negligent pet owners. We need some punishment for these dumbasses.

Hey 3:17, I'm pretty sure everyone, dog lovers included, knows that assholes exist.

WLBT says pit bulls and the owner won't face charges due to no dog ordinance in the county. Dogs were put down at least.

4:10, you nailed it !!! A vicious dog and its owner have more rights than those trying to protect themselves from the dogs. You can kill a man, claim castle law and get away with it quicker than you can for shooting a vicious dog.

As for me, I do not and will not tolerate a vicious dog. If one comes at me in the street it will meet the business end of my sidearm. I have the right to protect myself and family. I will deal with the fall out. There will be no second chance for a vicious dog.

All the more reason to kill pit bulls at every opportunity. Shoot them when in the country. Run them over when in the city.

To hell with the 'authorities", this is why buckshot was invented.

I just saw on the news that the owner of the dogs will face no charges since the county has no loose/vicious dog ordinance.

The family should lawyer up and go after the owner, sheriff's dept and Montgomery County BOS.

Six roaming pit bulls to one owner....

Not illegal, but obviously the owner is a sociopath. Chances are that the owner has pups on standby.

Here’s to hoping that the parents get a personal injury attorney. That’ll at least have the owner wishing that he/she were more responsible.

I hope that the child makes a full recovery mentally and physically, however I wouldn’t be surprised if the owner has just created the next Michael Vick.

to 7:23......" get a PI attorney",,,,,,, yes thats a good idea, but you got to understand that there is a 99% chance that the owner of these dogs has no insurance, no money, no land , no assets,,no net worth, no nothing. and you cant get $ out of someone who has nothing. dont fall into the trap that so many others do on this blog who seem to think everyone is filthy rich and fully insured. i do hope that the district attorney of that county can somehow criminally prosecute the the owner of those pit bulls.

What about criminal negligence?

There's a way to charge this individual if the DA wants to but it's Holmes County so, in addition to being politically unpopular, you would never get a conviction.

Does anyone know if these beasts belong to Pitt Bull Mom?

Anonymous said...

It isn't Holmes county, 12:36. Read the article.

I don't know anything about the Montgomery county DA. This is an election year and if he/she cares about getting re-elected, they would do well to go after the dog owner for something. Just because the county has no loose dog ordinance doesn't mean the owner isn't negligent.

3:17.... I like dogs but I applaud you. My family owns a reasonably sized ranch and all the white red necks let their dogs run wild so we do the same. The dogs are trespassing and with kids or other family pets around, it’s best to just kill roaming dogs like that.

I wonder how many of you dog lovers wouldn’t shoot a feral cat, but they’ll eat a cow or chicken haha

I'll dust a feral cat in heart beat! An aggressive dog too ! Just aske the lady across the street from me.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
