Mason Mihlberger was on his way to his friend’s house when a dog attacked him
A 5-year-old Utah boy is recovering after a dog attacked him while he was biking to his friend’s house.
Mason Mihlberger’s mother and father heard his screaming, then ran outside and saw a husky attacking his infant son Wednesday near his home in Sandy, reports KSL-TV.
After the attack, Mason was taken to the hospital by helicopter, according to KSL-TV, where he received between 2,000 and 3,000 stitches to his face and ear, as well as a skin graft.
“If my husband and I weren’t there, my son would be dead right now,” Mason’s mother, Tori Mihlberger, told the outlet. “He went for his throat; he has bite marks on his throat.”
“His eyes were fixed on Mason,” Tori said, according to the outlet. “As he was going up, the dog was dragging him down the street, throwing him around like a rag doll. I don’t know why, but that dog wanted to kill my son.”

Attacked by a Dog
Tori told the outlet that she had to kick the dog to free her son, but the dog persisted, trying to corner her husband and bite Mason. They eventually had to restrain the dog.
“I was dragging myself everywhere, but my mom and dad came,” Mason told KSL-TV.
Tori also told KSL-TV that Mason did nothing to provoke the attack. The husky was wearing a collar but had no tags and was detained by animal control.
According to the outlet, authorities are still deciding what will happen to the dog or whether the owners will face charges.
The boy’s aunt, Tristen Cherie Smith, created a GoFundMe to help raise money for Mason’s medical expenses.
In an update yesterday, Smith wrote that Mason was out of surgery and called him a “sweet baby.”
“He’s only 5 years old and lucky to be alive,” she says in the fundraiser’s description. “He has many, many surgeries ahead of him.”
