A toddler was mauled by a pit bull as he played with other kids on a Rockland County street, horrific footage of the attack shows.
The 41-second clip shows the dog charging at the 3-year-old child, dragging him to the ground and tossing him around like a rag doll.
The boy, wearing yellow pants, can then be seen struggling to crawl away.
Moments later, people can be seen rushing over to help, with one man pulling the dog away by its collar.
Police captured the dog...
Photos ... show the side of the childs face and neck bloodied from the deep bite marks.
The boy was hospitalized and released
Apparently the pit bull has been on the loose in recent weeks, prompting neighbors to call the Spring Valley Police Department.

"It's not the breed, it's how you raise them" is right up there with "he was a good boy, he was just turning his life around" and "this was probably a case of workplace violence" in terms of lame excuses.
Some breeds are just meaner than others. Never liked Pit Bulls..
the Ax Logger family the browns their rottweiller killed their daughter while the wife watched it happen outside the window I guess- The dog had apparently bitten someone previous to that too- It was a very tragic scene-
Recently a different breed of dog turned on his owner and killed him on TV -
And islam is a religion of peace.
Islamaphobia is the cause of terror attacks.
It’s okay to point a gun at someone as long as you’re sure it’s not loaded.
It had the dog upset with its environment.
And yellow. Everyone knows that famous statement about ‘seeing yellow’.
But, hey, the NYPost gets a quote from Chelsea Clinton.
The little tyke was hospitalized and released. So maybe not too much damage was done.
Except the trauma and likely life long fear of all dogs
Owner needs to be charged with felony aasault and battery.
I have a simple rule when it comes to pit bulls:
One pit bull
Why just one bullet, when three or four will do the same job?
Agree but I say kill them all.
They are a weaponized breed and should be handled as such. Seriously. No foolin’
My favorite scenario is watching a 4 or 5 year old walking the family pit at the crowded beach whilst the family admires how cute it all is...
Physical trauma maybe.
The emotional trauma will not fade as quickly.
I just returned from. Colombia S. America..several cities are on the verge of banning the breed. They already have muzzle laws
Not really. Review assault.
The owner should pay bigly, hughly, and whatever big word applies.
as he played with other kids on a Rockland County street
What idiot parent sends a 3 year old to 'play on the street'?
Sounds like the pit bull is the secondary problem here.
The kids were on the sidewalk.
But then if you do it my way, you will have 3 or 4 more 9mm bullets left for 3 or 4 more pit bulls.
The story at the link clearly indicates ‘on the street’ and mentions nothing about a sidewalk. But if you have other, more accurate, sources, I’ll yield to your statement.
