A 7-year-old girl was killed and her mother injured after pit bulls attacked them in a North Carolina backyard.
The incident happened in the town of Garner on Tuesday afternoon, according to CBS 17.
The mother and daughter were taking care of their neighbor’s two pit bulls, according to the report.
At one point, they attacked.
“This is a horrible tragedy for all involved. Our thoughts and prayers go out to both families and all those who responded,” Garner Police Lt. Michael McIver told the station.
The dogs were reportedly taken to an animal shelter, and it’s unclear what sparked the fatal attack.
