Family Owned Pit Bull
UPDATE 02/19/14: In a Tuesday update by KXAN, it was revealed that the child’s family also owned a pit bull. “The Mayes family had their own pit bull that neighbors and family members say is friendly, and the kids play with it all the time,” states the article. Details are sparse partly because the local paper, the Temple Daily Telegram, is behind a paywall. Today, the Killeen Daily Herald noted that the attacking female pit bull also had two puppies at the time of the incident.
