LOWELL, Mass. -- A Massachusetts town is mourning the loss of a young boy who was mauled to death by two pit bulls.
CBS Boston reports the 7-year-old boy was attacked at around 6 p.m. Saturday in Lowell.
The Middlesex district attorney's office says a preliminary investigation suggests the boy was attacked after entering a fenced-in area where the dogs were kept.
Neighbor Roger Rodriguez said he couldn't imagine the dogs would hurt anyone.
"The dogs to me were very mellow dogs, very nice. I used to play with the dogs sometimes," Rodriguez said. "It's too bad, all of my prayers go to the family."
