Pittsburgh Zoo Tragedy: Why Did African Wild Dogs Attack Boy?

In a “worst nightmare” situation, 11 African wild, or painted, dogs killed a two-year-old Pennsylvania boy Sunday after he had fallen into an enclosure at the Pittsburgh Zoo, zoo officials confirmed at a press conference Monday.

One of the dogs was shot after it wouldn’t leave the boy’s body. The others have been quarantined.

“The zoo feels terrible that this tragic accident happened,” said Barbara Baker, chief executive of the Pittsburgh Zoo, which remains closed until further notice.
