ROBBINSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina say a 2-year-old boy was mauled by his grandmother’s five pit bulls and is in critical condition.

Graham County Sheriff’s Capt. Joseph Jones said today that the boy was bitten on his neck, stomach and legs. Jones says the boy was attacked Saturday while playing in his yard, where several of the dogs were running free.

Police have quarantined five pit bulls at the Haywood County animal shelter, and they likely will be killed. Jones said the family kept the dogs as pets and was not breeding them.

The boy’s grandmother told investigators she had been trying to give the dogs away.

Jones says no charges have been filed.
