In Birmingham, a 3-year-old boy is dead after he was mauled by two Rottweilers and a Doberman pincher.
Tristen Gambrel's mother woke up Saturday morning and could not find her son in the house. Then she walked outside and found the child bitten on the inner thigh and the head. He was not conscious when paramedics arrived. As for the dogs, they've been taken into custody by Birmingham's Animal Control officers and they'll stay there until the investigation is over.
