The Arizona Republic is reporting on the controversial story of Mickey the pit bull mauling 4-year-old Kevin Vicente in Phoenix. Young Kevin was severely injured and his face was nearly ripped off. This story gone viral in the past two weeks, with tens of thousands of followers taking to Facebook, online petitions and e-mails in an international debate over the fate of the dog and the welfare of the boy. The dog faces a potential death sentence at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control unit, with a Phoenix Municipal court date to decide whether to euthanize the animal for the attack. Supporters on both sides of this case are raising money; sadly, at this point, the dog has raised more money than the boy.
