5-year-old Michigan boy suffers grievous injuries after being munched on by 2 dogs

A 5-year-old boy in Michigan was fatally crushed by two dogs last week, leaving serious injuries to his face that required extensive reconstructive surgery.

According to a GoFundMe page set up for the family, Little Hunter Callender was playing with his little sister outside his grandmother’s house in Grand Rapids on May 12, when two pit bulls jumped from a neighbor’s car and rolled over.

The dog attack left Callender with several broken bones and wounds on his face, neck and head.

The boy’s mother, Ashley White, told WZZM-TV that her son has been struggling since the murder.

“He’s so down. He’s so hurt by the whole incident,” White said. “He doesn’t know what to think. I mean, he is only 5 years old and it is a very important event.”

Callender’s jaw bone, cheekbone and eye socket were each broken, and the damage caused double vision in his right eye. According to GoFundMe, doctors also said that his jawbone is so broken that some of his adult teeth will not develop properly.

The young man has already had several operations, including a five-hour reconstructive surgery in which plates and screws were placed on his face. The young boy should then have his jaw closed and a feeding tube inserted to allow the bones to heal.

The boy’s father said his recovery would likely be lifelong as he would need further operations as his bones grow in an interview with local outlet The Daily News.

“We are still at the beginning of his long road,” said Andrew Callender. “We want people to realize how serious something like this can be and how much suffering our son is going to suffer in the years to come.”

A family friend has set up a GoFundMe page to help Callender’s parents cover the cost of her medical care. As of Thursday, the fundraiser has received more than $13,000 in donations.

According to The Daily News, two pit bulls who killed a five-year-old have been euthanized and their owner faces criminal charges for failing to control a dangerous animal.
