Boy battles ferocious pit bulls to save little sister

The brother and sister were walking to the bus stop when they were attacked by the canines


DUBLIN, Ga. — When a pair of young siblings found themselves pitted against two dogs, the brother put himself in danger to save his sister's life.

To get to the bus stop, 11-year-old Maleik Carr and his sister Jalia walk through the backyard and along a chain link fence. But on Monday morning, the neighbor's fence had a gaping hole and two unleashed pitbulls.

"The brown and white dog ran to the other side, jumped out of the fence and the black one did too, and they started snapping at Jalia. So I ran over there started kicking them away from her, and they bit me. And I told Jalia to run," says Maleik.
