Dogs Chew Off Baby's Testicles
Two pitbulls chewed off the testicles of a 6-month-old boy strapped in a baby carrier and left alone in a Murrieta, Calif. apartment last Saturday.
Police say the mother Carrie McKinney, 22, left the baby in a car seat on the floor in her boyfriend's apartment. When the couple left the room a 5-year-old female pit bull and an 8-month-old pit bull mix (pictured, above) attacked the baby, tearing off the infant's diaper and biting his scrotum. Carrie told police she was getting dressed and her boyfriend was taking a shower when they heard the baby's screams.
He was rushed to a local hospital where he underwent surgery. One doctor says if the boy was castrated, he would require a lifetime of hormone-replacement therapy and perhaps reconstructive surgery.
The dogs will be euthanized. The mother and boyfriend haven't been charged with child endangerment -- or anything for that matter.
