A two year old girl was mauled to death by a pit bull terrier yesterday.
Dead is Ronicka Gregory, a student of the Rosehall Pre-school in St. Catherine.
Reports are that Gregory's sister went to pick her up from school. On their way home, the sister fell and the dog attacked, grabbing the two year old in her neck.
Despite her efforts to free her sister from the dog, she could not free her from the deadly grasp of the animal.
The Jamaica Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has since removed the animal in question.
