A Chicago family recently lost their 5-year-old boy after he was brutally attacked by a dog. In a case often seen by a dog bite attorney in Chicago, the boy, his mother and a sibling were visiting a neighbor’s home when the dog suddenly attacked for no reason. According to the Chicago Tribune, the dog took the boy by the neck and began shaking him like a rag doll. Despite attempts by the mother and neighbors to remove the dog from the boy, it still refused to let go.
