A 2-year-old boy in Alabama died after he was attacked by his neighbor’s dogs.

The boy, identified by his mother as Mark Alan Partain, was fatally injured last Friday. WAAY reported that three canines are believed to have been involved and have been quarantined, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

Two of the dogs belonged to Mark Alan’s neighbor, who told the outlet that the dogs are a husky and a German shepherd mix.

The dog owner, Ricky Clark, told WAAY he was alerted when he heard Mark Alan’s father yelling for help.

"He was laying on the ground there in front of the dog pen, and he wasn't moving or nothing and the gate was open," Clark told the station.
