A seven-year-old boy was pronounced dead one week after being attacked by a neighbor’s bulldogs while riding his bicycle. The Bay County Sheriff’s Office informed local media that Tyler Jett was pronounced dead at a Pensacola hospital Sunday afternoon. The cause of death was a punctured carotid artery.
Last Tuesday, April 2, the young boy was riding his bicycle in his neighborhood after school when two dogs, one an Alapaha blood bulldog and the other a brindle bulldog, attacked him. The two bulldogs belonged to Edward Daniels Jr. Jett’s family members rushed to his aid and chased the bulldogs back to Daniels’ residence, but it was unfortunately too late, for the young boy had already suffered what turned out to be a fatal injury. Daniels faces a number of charges, including drug charges, manslaughter, and tampering with evidence.
