On Tuesday, a six-year-old child was fatally attacked by a pit bull in Henderson County. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the dog was recently adopted from the Asheville Humane Society. Although very few details have been released, we do know that the dog was so aggressive when law enforcement officers arrived on scene, it had to be shot.
At this time, no charges have been filed, and the Asheville Humane Society reportedly followed the proper adoption procedures prior to sending the dog home with a family. This is the second fatal pit bull attack involving a child in the past couple of weeks. A three-year-old in Lawton, Oklahoma was killed by a pit bull just a few weeks ago.
The whole team at Davis Law Group, P.A. sends their deepest heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of Joshua Strother.
