Police say a Florida toddler was mauled to death by a family member’s dogs.
The attack occurred Friday morning at a High Springs home.
The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office says the 2-year-old boy was with his grandmother as she went to her daughter’s home to check on the dogs.
The grandmother let the dogs out in the yard with the boy while she went inside to prepare food.
Deputies say the grandmother then went outside to find two dogs attacking the boy in a shed.
The grandmother sustained severe injuries while trying to rescue the boy, who died at the scene.
Animal control officers removed the two dogs that attacked the boy and four others from the home.
