LITTLE EGG HARBOR — An act of kindness toward a pit bull backfired when it attacked a 4-year-old boy, police said. The lost dog's behavior was not aggressive when family members brought it into their backyard on Lake Winnepesaukee Drive in Little Egg Harbor early Thursday evening, Little Egg Harbor police told NJ.com. But a short time later the dog left the family's 4-year-old child with puncture wounds and scratches after it "went after the boy's face" police said.
