When you read the headline did you think, "I'll bet it was a pit bull." You'd be correct. Sadly, two-year-old Beau Rutledge was mauled and killed by the family's pit bull at home Thursday afternoon (April 25th), according to police. They added that the attack occurred around 1 p.m. when the toddler's mother stepped away to use the bathroom, leaving the child unattended with the family dogs. One can only imagine the horror she returned to.
