In El Paso, Texas, two parents of a four-year-child mauled to death by the family’s starving dogs have been arrested. On Friday, detectives arrested Brittany Brooks, 27 and Ashley Brooks, 29 charging them with causing injury to a child – a second degree felony. On July 27, the child Jacob Brooks was killed after four family dogs attacked him. The dogs have all since been euthanized.

According to KFoxNews, Jacob had been in the backyard at a home located on Morelia Road where the dogs lived. The little boy had been left in an enclosed trampoline when the dogs allegedly attacked. Three of the dogs were German shepherd mixes and one dog was described as a pit bull mix. Neighbors and relatives stated the dogs had not been fed and would cry at night. El Paso Animal Services stated the dogs were emaciated and had not been socialized, although family members stated the dogs had never shown any aggression.

The El Paso police found the child’s battered body in the yard.

Both women are in custody at the El Paso County Detention Facility in lieu of $7,500 bond. The women also had unrelated warrants pending.

    Dogs suffered because of owners, and then destroyed. Yes, a 4 yr. old child died, and dogs ultimately loose as well as any relatives who cared about this child. It’s obvious from their faces that the could care less about their child and definitely not 3 dogs since they let them starve to the point they attacked their own child. Jail forever in solitary after prison inmates give them “jail” justice.

      O Penny – YOU said it best. As usual, the dogs are euthanized because of what these two deplorable c-nts did – Texas, YOU once again proved your total lack of humanity towards abused animals and euthanized the wrong species –

    What kind of idiots leave a 4 year old child unattended with 4 big dogs like this in the first place? Again the dogs are euthanized because of idiot humans! Nothing will be done about these morons, they were most likely picked up more for the “unrelated” warrants in the first place!

    It looks like those too fucking fat slobs haven’t missed any meals because of them the little child is dead in the dogs are dead they both should be fucking hung

    GRRRRRR! They put down the wrong “animals”. The dogs should have been given a chance at being good citizens. Surely they would have LOVED to be rescued. Geez! Makes me sick on all levels.

    Why have dogs and children when you’re incapable of caring for them? The dogs and child are now dead and the two fat putrid pigs who are responsible for their death are only charged with causing injury to a child. Where’s the justice for the child and the 4 abused and starved dogs? Disgusting!!!!

  9. Red says:

    Sureeee……blame and murder the dogs. Then these sick two monsters are probably out on bail and will skip the country!
    They have no defense, deserve no trial, throw them in jail, lock the door and NEVER RETURN.
