VIDEOS: Dog brutally attacks toddler

A brutal dog attack on a 3-year-old boy in New York was captured on video and posted to social media on Thursday afternoon.

In the video, the little boy is seen playing with a group of friends outside a home in Spring Valley, N.Y., when a black dog running from across the street suddenly charges at the youngster. His friends scatter as the dog takes hold of the child, dragging him along the pavement.

The child manages to escape the beast’s jaws and tries to run away, but the dog races after him again and adults have to pull the dog away.

A photo of the child, who is identified as being an Orthodox Jew, was featured in a tweet published by the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) of Hudson Valley showing the bloody injuries to his neck and cheek.

Asking for the public’s help in identifying the dog’s owner, OJPAC also posted another video in which the same dog can be seen terrorizing neighbors.

The dog’s owner was quickly identified and the dog was reportedly returned to the owner.

According to a statement by OJPAC, the dog, which has been identified as a pit bull, has been seen running through the neighborhood without a collar. “Neighbors say they have called the Spring Valley PD about this multiple times but little action has been taken,” they said.

The council reported on Thursday night that the dog’s history is now being looked into by local police.

The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital where his condition was unknown late Thursday, according to news reports.
