Zuma/No Credit


A two-year-old boy was mauled to death by African Painted Dogs at the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium after he plummeted into their enclosure on Sunday.

The tragic tot fell over a wooden railing into the dog pit while visiting the zoo with his 34-year-old mother just before noon, and was immediately attacked by the animals that are on the endangered species list.


After the alarm was raised, zoo workers jumped into the enclosure with rakes to try and scare the dogs off and while they managed to deter seven of the beasts, they failed to get the remaining three away from the child, believed to be from Pleasant Hills, PA.

According to The Pittsburgh Post Gazette the little boy’s lifeless body was seen surrounded by three of the dogs – also called African painted dogs – who were attacking his head, neck and leg.


"The screams just kept coming and coming," Angela Cinti, 20, told The Post-Gazette: "We were on our way to the polar bear exhibit when we heard the most horrible piercing screams...someone was begging for help, asking someone to do something.”

One of the dogs was shot and killed during the incident, with a zoo official describing their "pack mentality."


Another zoo-goer, Bart DePasquale, also described the horror, saying: "On the way out I saw a mother who was distressed and crying and other people who couldn't even talk about it ...anyone who had been close were almost in tears, were walking out glassy-eyed.

“That's when multiple people told me the dogs attacked a young child."


Zoo President and Chief Executive Officer Barbara Baker said that there has been no decision made about the future of the painted dog exhibit.

The Zoo is closed indefinitely while police and zoo officials investigate the tragedy.

Why was the child on the rail? Either the mom  took her eyes off of him or she was holding him on the rail...neither the smartest move to make. I agree with Sandra .....about putting the dogs down....Horrible way for a child (or anyone ) to lose their life.

This story angered me. I really didn't want to go there, but why the hell would any sensible person put their 2 yr old on that railing? Seriously now? Poor baby.
