Five-year-old Carson Lattibeaudiere, who was mauled by a mongrel dog belonging to a cousin, while he assisted his grandfather in taking out trash last December, has been released from hospital.
Although scarred, his mother, Tamara Bonner, has reported that the child is already “up and about”.
Managing Director of the Jamaica Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (JSPCA), Pamela Lawson, told The Gleaner on Monday that the dog involved has already been euthanised. She shared that the owner complied with the request of the police and signed off to have the process undertaken.
A second dog that is housed at the premises was left there, as it was not involved in the attack.
DOING REALLY GOOD
Bonner is excited to have her son back at home. She shared that all the bandages were removed, but watching him count the scars on his arms, left leg, neck and head is a painful experience.
