Omg, this is just awful!
We can't even imagine what his family is going through!
A 6-year-old boy, Nephi Selu, was playing in his family's backyard in Union City, CA.
A family dog was outside as well and it's believed that Nephi tried to climb up onto the dog's back.
That's when the pit bull mix attacked and bit the boy on top of his head.
He was treated at the scene and then rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The dog is currently quarantined at an animal shelter.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the family of this poor child.
Check out the video (above) to learn more about this sad, sad attack.
This is absolutely disgusting!!
In Yulin in Guangxi province, China, there is a festival that many residents consider an ancient summer solstice tradition.
A dog-meat festival!!
This awful festival leads to the deaths of 10,000 dogs, many of whom are electrocuted, burned and skinned alive!
This is so ahmayzing and sad at the same time.
Kermie, an 11-year-old dog, was diagnosed with cancer only a month after her owner Eric Ralston was sent out on an 8-month military deployment.
She was only given 2-3 months to live.
Miraculously, Kermie survived way longer than the vets had ever thought she would.
Just as Eric's return home neared… his deployment was extended indefinitely.
His family knew Kermie wouldn't make it much longer…
Except for the fact that she DID!!
She survived all the way until she could be reunited with her papa!!
Look at how excited she is!! She even started doing better after he got home, eating and drinking again without any struggle.
Check out the video (above) to see a heartwarming reunion!!
A poor little fox cub had his head stuck in a glass jar!
So sad! The little wild animal must've been searching for food in the container when he stuck his face too deep in the jar.
Luckily, two men were walking through nature when they came across the little baybay in need of help.
The crazy part is the little guy just walked right up to them, as if he was asking them for help!
One of the men sprang into action and tried to remove the jar from the fox cub's head.
Check out the video (above) to see if he's able to save the little guy!
Aaron Armstrong, of Waldoboro in Maine, has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty after he allegedly shot a dog dozens of times with a BB gun!
Luckily the dog, a black lab named Lady, survived the incident and has been adopted. The doggy began its new life with its new owner this past Wednesday.
The dog was found wandering around two weeks ago and was taken to a pet hospital. The doctor found 80-100 BBs under the dog's legs, back, and face.
This is ridiculous!!
A cop in North Ridgeville, Ohio is in trouble with the local community after a serious lapse in judgement.
He responded to a home after a woman called saying she was unable to remove several flea-ridden, feral cats from her yard.
When the cop showed up, he told her the shelters were full and the cats would be sent to "kitty heaven."
This is just awful!!
The Wyoming Wildlife Services are a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
A big part of their job is to humanely kill wildlife that might threaten the environment and livestock.
But they seem to be skipping the whole humane part and are just using trained dogs to rip apart live coyotes!!
