JOHANNESBURG – An eight-year-old boy has been mauled to death by a pit bull at his home in Vista Park near Bloemfontein.

It’s understood the dog escaped the yard and jumped over the fence into a neighbouring property on Saturday.

The dog has since been put down.

“Police rushed to the scene and found the emergency personnel already at the scene attending to the severely injured child. The aggressive dog covered in blood was spotted nearby and put down by the SAPS members. The eight-year-old boy lying next to the garage door in his parents’ yard was certified dead at the scene.”

This is the latest killing of a child by the breed in recent months.

In September, a 10-year-old was mauled to death by the family’s two pit bulls at his home in the Eastern Cape.
