A Texas community is in shock after a pit bull violently killed a 4-year-old boy.

Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office were called to a home just west of Conroe Saturday evening after getting a call that Christian Gormanous had been bitten by a pit bull.

Investigators with the Major Crimes Unit learned it happened after the boy climbed a chain link fence into a neighbor's yard. The dog was chained, but investigators said Christian got close enough to be attacked by the dog.

The victim's 9-year-old sister pulled the boy to safety and called for help, officials said.

Christian later died at the hospital.

Neighbors said they've complained about the dog running lose before.

"We called and called the Humane Society, and they don't ever do anything about it," said Michel McDanel, who lives nearby.

I pray for that little boy and his family and the family of the dog that killed him. Why was a 4year old running loose, without adult supervision, giving him enough time to climb over a chain link fence and walk into a yard with a secured dog on a chain? I am not blaming anyone just wondering where the adult supervision of this beautiful little boy was?
