A pregnant French woman was found mauled to death by dogs after walking her dog at the same time a group of hunting hounds were said to be stalking deer in the area. The woman reportedly called her partner before the attack to express her concern about "threatening" dogs.
Three of the dogs were shot and killed at the scene, while another was later put down due to her injuries.
New York State Police investigators determined the wounds and circumstances were "consistent with a dog attack."
Though the boy was bitten, his 19-year-old neighbor saved the child by running directly at the attacking dog.
The dog—reportedly a pit bull terrier—bit a number of children after it got loose during the recess of third and fourth graders.
When approached, the dog was "barking and lunging on the leash."
Police were called and shot dead one of the dogs.
