An 18-month-old boy from Willis is in critical condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital after being attacked by a pit bull.
The child was bitten on the face, neck and side. His mother also suffered severe bites and scratches.
Montgomery County authorities say the mother and child live at the same home as the dog, but the animal is actually owned by someone who is currently in Montgomery County Jail.
This follows deadly pit bull attack in Montgomery County on Jan. 19. Deputies say four-year-old Christian Gormanous was mauled to death when he climbed a fence and went into a neighbor's yard.
