No charges filed after pit bull attack

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

UPDATE: Temple Police Department's General Investigations Unit met with Bell County District Attorney to present their findings in the death of Je'vaeh Mays.

Following the review, it was agreed that no criminal offense had been committed by any person present at the event and the investigation is now closed.

Upon completion of the criminal investigation the owner of the animal failed or refused to claim the animal from the shelter despite numerous calls from city officials. The dog was euthanized on 3-5-2014, in accordance with City of Temple Ordinance.

 

Temple Police are investigating after a 2-year-old girl is killed in a pit bull attack.

At 11:27 a.m., officers were dispatched to the report of a dog bite in the 800 block of E. Avenue M.

While en route, police also got word that a small child was admitted to the Scott and White Emergency Department after being attacked by a dog.

After arriving on scene, they realized both incidents stemmed from the same attack.

Police learned the family was taking care of the dog for a friend, and it was chained in the backyard.

Somehow, 2-year-old Je'veah Mayes had gotten out of the house without anyone noticing, and was attacked by the dog.

When the family noticed, they rushed her to Scott and White, but doctors weren't able to save her.

Temple Animal Control Services have quarantined the dog and are investigating the incident.
