Window Rock, AZ – A 3-year old boy was killed by a pack of dogs in Seba Dalkai Thursday. The community is located on the Navajo Nation Reservation northeast of Flagstaff. The boy’s mother, Kimasha Begay of Gallup, told the Navajo Times that Kayden Colter Begay was visiting her paternal grandparents in Seba Dalkai at the time. Kayden had followed his aunt outside to get the cattle when a pack of 12 pit bulls owned by the family’s neighbor attacked and killed him. – DogsBite.org
“From what I was told, the aunt didn’t know Kayden had followed her,” said Kimasha Begay, holding back sobs. “She turned around and saw the dogs gathered around something. She went to see what they were doing, and that’s when she found my son.” Kimasha Begay said she was told the left side of Kayden’s face had been torn off and his thigh was gnawed to the bone, reports the Navajo Times.
