Maleik battled the dogs alone and once he was able to keep them off long enough, he jumped over his backyard fence to safety. That’s when his older sister took him to the hospital.
The young boy had emergency surgery for the deep wounds on his legs. He sustained a total of 23 bites on his leg, and a few more on his hands.
“It hurt me to my soul when I saw those cuts,” said the father, Willie Carr. “It was very hard not crying in front of him because he was already so strong, and I wanted him to continue being strong.”
Sherry added, “I was hurt, scared and after all was said and done, angry, because more care wasn’t taken to make sure these dogs didn’t hurt anyone.”
She’s also concerned because her eight other children often play in the family’s backyard, but Sherry said she takes solace in knowing how much they all care for each other.
Another so called nanny dog attacking some kids. As someone who enjoys being outside myself these stories happen way too often.
