A 5-year-old boy in Michigan was viciously mauled by two dogs last week, leaving him with severe facial injuries that required extensive reconstructive surgery.

Little Hunter Callender was playing with his younger sister outside his grandmother’s house in Grand Rapids on May 12 when two pit bulls jumped out of a neighbor’s car and lunged at him, according to a GoFundMe page set up for the family.

The dog attack left Callender with several broken bones and gashes on his face, neck and head.

The boy’s mother Ashley White told WZZM-TV that her son has been struggling since the mauling.

“He’s been pretty down. He’s pretty traumatized by the whole event,” White said. “He doesn’t know what to think. I mean, he’s only 5 and that’s quite an event to go through.”
