Five dogs maul three children. -- http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0...5003402,00.html

FIVE dogs broke free from a yard in California and mauled three children Monday, leaving one child in a critical condition.

Police said the dogs attacked the three siblings - ages five, six and seven - as they were walking to a park with their mother, KABC reported.

The five-year-old girl was injured so severely she was on a ventilator at one point.

One of the dogs, a mastiff, caused the most severe injuries, according to the report, with police saying the hospital called after the attack to ask if they had recovered any muscle tissue.

If they had, it might have been possible to reattach it, the hospital said.

The other four dogs included a purebred pitbull and three of mixed breeds.

The owners of the dogs could face criminal charges if it’s determined they did not do enough to keep the dogs secure.

The dogs are likely to be destroyed.

Oh how awful!

Poor babies. :laugh:

I hope they recover quickly. Unfortunately I am sure that this will not be the case, especially emotionally.
