A child in Layton, Ohio, is missing his arm after he reached beneath vinyl fencing to pet dogs in an adjoining yard. According to multiple reports, one of the dogs in the fenced yard grabbed hold of the boy’s arm and ripped it off.
As reported by KUTV News, the four-year-old boy had a sock on the arm which he put beneath the fencing on Sunday afternoon. Emergency responders tried to locate the child’s arm, but were unsuccessful – it is surmised that one of the dogs, described as a husky, may have eaten the arm.
The little boy was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital for care – he was reported to be in stable condition.
As reported by 10TV News, the husky believed to be responsible for the attack has been seized – it is unclear what the dog’s fate will be.
