A retired Clay County Sheriff's canine recently mauled and seriously injured a four–year–old boy.
KFGO News has learned the victim is the son of former Clay County Deputy Ryan Carey, who was fired in July after an incident in the Twin Cities.
A sheriff's report says the boy was attacked while he was trying to hug the dog Sunday night.
The boy has injuries on his nose, face and scalp, and was scheduled for surgery at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.
Ownership of the dog "Cuda" was transferred to Carey shortly after he was fired.
Because of the attack, the dog has been officially declared "dangerous."
Which means Carey must install warning signs and carry special insurance.
