Dog rips arm off 4-year-old child in attack


A four-year-old child is undergoing surgery after a dog tore the child’s arm off in a horrific attack Sunday.

The Layton Fire Department said the child had stuck an arm beneath a fence that separated the backyard the child was in from the neighbors, where two huskies lived, around 3:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the 1000 block of N. 3575 W.

According to KUTV, the child reached through the fence to pet the dogs when one bit the child and ripped off the lower arm and hand.

The Fire Department said they were able to find the dog, but not the arm, and believe the dog may have eaten them.
