PEMBROKE, Ga. -- Police in coastal Georgia say a toddler has died after being attacked by seven dogs.
Bryan County Sheriff Clyde Smith tells the Savannah Morning News the 18-month-old girl was mauled in the yard Wednesday evening by dogs her family owned. Authorities say the unidentified girl's grandmother was asleep when she heard a commotion and saw the girl being attacked as she looked out of her window.
Authorities say the dogs, pit bulls and pit bull mixes, have been euthanized by Bryan County Animal Control.
It was unclear Wednesday night if charges would be filed.
