Dog on Trial for Allegedly Mauling 6-Year-Old Boy

Man fights for his dog's life, claiming vicious mauling of a 6-year-old boy was an "accident". 

(WHDH)  A public hearing will decide the fate of a dog that attacked a 6-year-old boy, leaving him with wounds requiring surgery and 400 stitches.

The pointer/hound mix attacked the boy while his owner was babysitting the child in his Mansfield, Massachusetts home.

The dog's owner is taking full responsibility, calling it a "tragic accident" and adding the dog's never caused trouble to neighbors,  before stressing he's "not a dangerous, vicious dog."

The Mansfield Board of Selectmen will meet at the end of the month, and with the public's input, will determine what happens next.
