A TWO-year-old boy was tragically mauled to death by two dogs in front of his older sisters in a horror attack outside a motel.
Young Jyedon Pollard was playing in the yard of a motel in Cowra, NSW when the two dogs attacked him.
Horrified relatives spoke of a “freakish attack” when the two dogs, a Rottweiler and a cattle dog “for no known reason” the Daily Telegraph reported.
The attack left the boy with serious injuries to his neck and face and he was rushed to the local hospital.
He was flown in a helicopter to Westmead Hospital in Sydney in critical condition, but doctors were unable to save him.
The horrifying attack happened at about 10.20 am on Tuesday at the Country Gardens Motel.
The boy’s mum Kesha Pollard, had been living temporarily at the motel with her three kids while waiting for permanent accommodation.
A relative told the outlet the children had played with the two dogs before without any problem.
She said the two dogs savaged the child in front of his sisters and mum “for no known reason”.
“He’s the most precious and beautiful kid, no one can believe it’s happened to him,” a relative said.
NSW Police Superintendent Bob Noble said: “The child’s mother, who was with the child, was distraught, as you could imagine.
“It’s a very sensitive issue … we’re very concerned for the family and relatives, we just want to extend some understanding to the community at this time.”
Police said the two dogs have been seized by the local council while a crime scene has been cordoned off with police tape at the motel.
