Police say 4-year-old Jayelin Graham was mauled Friday night. His mother told police that when she tried to intervene, the dog, a male 100-pound Cane Corso mastiff, turned on her, too.
More than a dozen pit bull terriers were being cared for Tuesday after being discovered in a burning Bronx apartment.
Budget cuts are putting your pets at greater risk if they are lost in New York City. Animal Care and Control will no longer take reports of lost pets, and staffers at shelters will no longer search the facilities for missing animals.
The alligator was discovered around 3 p.m. on Newtown Avenue and 29th Street in Astoria. Animal Care and Control experts aren’t sure how the alligator got there.
