A small child has been killed in a dog attack near Lake Tawakoni

Quinlan (WBAP/KLIF) – A small child has been killed by a dog in a semi-rural part of Hunt County. Hunt County deputies say the child slipped, unnoticed, out of the family’s fenced yard on the west side of Lake Tawakoni late Monday morning, and was walking down a gravel road when a neighbor’s dog got out of its own fenced yard, and attacked. The child suffered what was described as “major trauma,” and died. The dog is now in the custody of Hunt County Animal Control pending the outcome of the sheriff’s on-going investigation.
