Police say that two large dogs chewed off the testicles of a 6-month-old boy strapped in a baby carrier. Apparently the baby was left alone in anapartment when the attack happened. Then a pit bull and pit bull mix attacked the baby, tearing off his diaper and biting his scrotum. The infant's mother, 22-year-old Carrie McKinney, had left her child in the carrier on the floor in her friend's apartment. Hearing the baby scream, the mother and a friend rescued the child. Police and child protective services are investigating, but no charges have been filed. The dogs are being put down.
The child is recovering in a local hospital.
