Toddler mauled by dogs while playing in backyard

Posted: Updated:
COVINGTON, Ga. -

A toddler was viciously mauled by dogs over the weekend and suffered severe facial injuries.

Colton Brown, 2, was playing in his backyard Saturday when two dogs began fighting and the boy somehow found himself caught in the middle.

Colton spent the weekend in the hospital and underwent plastic surgery. The child was released from the hospital Monday morning.

“You shouldn't have a home and worry that something is going to happen to your child in your own backyard,” said Lindsay Brown, Colton’s mother.

The dogs have not been located at this time.
