ST. GEORGE, Utah – Three Rottweiler dogs were put down after they attacked a boy in St. George earlier this month.

The attack occurred at the beginning of May. Police said 11-year-old KJ Reid was playing hide and seek with friends when he fell off a retaining wall and into a neighbor’s yard. The rottweilers in that yard attacked the boy, who sustained serious injuries.

The city attorney is still working to determine if charges will be filed in connection with the incident. The owner of the dogs gave consent for them to be euthanized.
