Two six-month-old puppies are said to be responsible for the death of a little boy in Clarksville, Tennessee. According to News Channel 5, the five-year-old boy suffered “extensive injuries” when he was mauled by his family’s two English Mastiff puppies on Thursday morning.
The tragic incident took place at a home on Charles Thomas Road – few details have been released about what led up to the fatal attack and investigators are seeking answers about the deadly situation. Both pups were removed from the family home and taken to the Montgomery County Animal Control.
Anyone with information is asked to reach out to Detective Tim Anderson with the Clarksville Police Department (931)648-0656 ext. 5132 or the TIPS line at 645-TIPS.
English Mastiffs are described as courageous dogs with a docile and “good-nature” personality.
