Police are investigating the death of a six-year-old who was reportedly violently mauled by at least one dog after being left alone outside.

Avery Dunphy was playing with his grandfather at his Las Cruces, New Mexico home when he had to step away for ‘no more than ten minutes’, a police report said.

The boy then apparently wandered into a caged area of the property where they kept fostered dogs.

According to the police report, the boy was then attacked, and suffered severe wounds including ‘cuts in his neck and chest’.

Avery Dunphy, six, was mauled to death by at least one fostered dog at his grandfather’s home in Las Cruces, New Mexico home after he was left alone for ‘no more than ten minutes’

In a 911 call, Avery’s grandfather can be heard saying: ‘Those dogs are back here with him, so I’m thinking a dog attacked him.’

Avery was airlifted to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, but he died shortly after arriving.

It’s unknown how the child was able to get into the area containing half a dozen animals or what happened prior to the attack.

ABC affiliate KVIA.com reported that the six dogs were euthanised, although it is not clear how many were involved in the incident.

On Saturday, the community gathered at Real Life Church and celebrated his life, including the Las Cruces Fire Department.

Avery’s father told TV station KFOX14 that his son had dreamed of one day becoming a fireman.

Avery would’ve ‘wanted everyone there,’ a family member added.

The member added that his ‘life needs to be celebrated and not to have died in vain.’ 

An investigation into the boy’s death is underway, however Stewart has said that preliminary information suggests the incident was an accident.

An autopsy is set to take place to determine the cause of death.
