Toddler at home after dog attack

Posted: Updated:

WARREN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Easter Sunday brings good news to the little boy from Warren County who was mauled by a dog.

Family members tell us he returned home Sunday. Twenty two month-old Jack Gaines has been at Blair E. Batson Children's Hospital since Wednesday night. That's when a six year old Black Mouth Cur dog, belonging to his grandmother, mauled the infant.

Gaines suffered multiple lacerations on his head and face. His parents, Robin Causey and Brad Gaines, say their son may not be able to open his left eye again. They have since moved out of the grandmother's home and are currently living with another relative.

According to Vicksburg Humane Society Officials, the dog was euthanized Friday afternoon.
