Girl, 4, tragically killed by three dogs in horror attack as owner watched on

A four-year-old girl has been killed in a horror attack after she was savaged to death by three dogs as the owner allegedly watched on.

Lea Freeman, also known as Lea Janae, was left dead after being mauled by the three dogs in Dallas, Texas, and subsequently rushed to hospital.

Neighbours have alleged that a woman was watching on as the youngster was attacked by the trio of dogs, reportedly owned by the woman looking on.

Lea's mum, Tiara Freeman, said that her daughter and two other children had stayed in the house with a woman while she had been to the shops.

Speaking on the incident, Tiara said: "She's just a playful little girl. She's just my little angel.

"When I went to get my wallet, my baby was just fine, she was sweet, she saw me leave, she asked where I was going, I said 'I'm going to the store real quick, I'll be right back, I'll back.' I come home, and this happens."

The distraught mum recalled how she screamed: "'Oh my God Lea!' I go around the corner and I'm like 'Lea no!'

"I'm crying, picking up my baby and I'm getting bitten by the dogs."

Michael Pennington, a neighbour who lives near to the incident, said: "The baby was messed up, man. I don’t, I don’t like to talk about it because I can’t hold myself in."

The concerned neighbour did however claim that the woman had trouble with aggressive dogs in the past, saying: "I thought the dogs was fighting because they had a fight the night before, two days before. But it was the baby the dogs got on, that baby."

Despite neighbours calling 911 and believing three dogs were involved in the attack, only one was taken by Dallas Animal Services, and there is no word on whether it was to be euthanised, The Mirror reported.

Lea's family are currently fundraising in the wake of the loss, raising £3,486 ($4,127) so far.
