Cordened off: The cul-de-sac in Concord, California, is still closed as police investigate the mauling of toddler Jacob Bisbee by the pit bull terriers
A 2-year-old Concord, Calif. boy is dead after he was attacked by his family's pitbulls at home.
Police say the child walked into the garage where the three pitbulls are kept around 8:45 a.m. Thursday when the animals attacked.
The child was severely injured and later pronounced dead at a hospital. Police say two adult relatives and a young sibling were home at the time. The Contra Costa County Animal Services department is assisting in the investigation.
The child's death comes amid a recent series of pitbull attacks that have renewed calls to put restrictions on owning the breed, which was developed for fighting.
