Two pit bull dogs mauled a five-year-old child to death in the resort town of White River in Mpumalanga on Tuesday.
The attack happened around 5 pm, when the little girl, who was being accompanied by the owner of the dogs, arrived on the property. The dogs attacked her, biting her all over until she died.
Seargent Cynthia Mbokodo of White River police told Sowetan that the police captured the dogs and took them to the SPCA. Mbokodo said the dogs also attacked their female owner.
