Christopher Camejo - A toddler killed by dogs in Florida

Christopher Camejo, age 2, died on December 6, 2014, at a house in Crystal River, Florida.
Christopher Camejo
He was called Jack by many of his family members.

The boy was with his parents, Claudia Scarbrough, age 31, and Christopher Camejo Sr., age 29,  who were visiting the boy's grandfather and his grandfather's girlfriend. Sometime after 4:00 p.m., the child slipped out of the house and into the backyard. 

While in the yard Chris was immediately attacked by four large Rottweilers who bit the boy to death. 

Animal Control confiscated the four Rottweilers and another dog.  Some of these dogs will be put down.

The family of Christopher are devastated over his tragic and senseless death.  The boy was known as "little man" by his grandfather, Joaquin Camejo.

The boy was greatly loved and his family has suffered an unspeakable loss. He will be forever missed and mourned.

The family has established a fundraising account to help with funeral expenses.

People have to wake up to the reality that large dogs should not be kept in any home
Would you want this ticked
off Rottweiler around
your children? 
in which there are children under the age of 12. Large dogs of any breed can turn on their "family members" for any number of reasons.

This ban should include but should not be limited to these dogs: Pit Bulls and all related Bull Terrier breeds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Basenjis, Saint Bernards, German Shepherds, Great Danes, Akitas, Boxers, Huskies, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Chows and Malamutes. There are many more obscure large dog breeds which should also be excluded from homes in which there are children.

All of these dog breeds are potentially dangerous. Some of these dog breeds have repeatedly proven that they can kill people both young and old, including people simply passing by. They have killed grown women walking in the hallways of their apartment buildings; they have killed 40 year old men jogging by on a country road; they have killed toddlers playing on the floor.

Sadly, we have often noticed that in these dog deaths tragedies, so many people come to the defense of the dog and chalk it all up to an unpredictable circumstance.

There has to be adult responsibility in all of this. 

Death by dog is not acceptable in a civilized country.

Little Chris is playing in the fields of Heaven. God bless this boy. Amen.

I do not agree with your post I being a pet owner of a very loving loyal compassionate obeying beautiful pitbull. I have 3 granddaugters that she loves and is very gentle with it is not just large breed dogs little ankle biters can hurt you as well. these animals if treated with respect and love can be your best friend it is owners that abuse neglect these animals that make them mean. I would not have another breed but my pitbull I have several friends and family with the same breed.maybe you should find the ones that are taken care of and treated properly and write about them. you always seem to find their faults look a little harder at us good pet owners and find te good. thank you and god bless
