A 3-year-old boy was attacked by a pit bull dog at 419 HWY 365 at approximately 1:30pm today. Deputies who arrived on scene advised that his injuries to his face, ears, and skull were severe.

He has been transported by Med Flight to Arkansas Children's Hospital. Deputies say this was a family pet, which belong to the child’s grandfather. The dog was on a chain in the yard and the child had been outside playing when the dog broke from the chain and attacked him. They aren't sure why the dog began attacking the little boy at this point in the investigation. The dogs owner (Ricky Jackson), was cited for Vicious Dog.

 The pit bull was put down by the deputies on scene.
