According to reports, the mother, Kirstie Jane, 30, was seriously wounded after she tried to pull the pit bulls off of her children, 5-month-old Hollace Dean and 2-year-old Lilly Jane.

The father of the children, Colby Bennard, was not home at the time of the deadly attack, according to reports.

The two pit bulls were euthanized on Thursday according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Friends of the family expressed shock and said they just couldn’t believe the two pit bulls would turn on the children and maul them to death.

Fox News reported:

The family dogs who mauled two Tennessee toddlers to death Wednesday and left their mother with severe injuries had never been aggressive, a friend told Fox News Digital.

Kirstie Jane Bennard, 30, was seriously wounded when she tried to pull the family’s two pit bulls off 5-month-old Hollace Dean and 2-year-old Lilly Jane at their home in rural Shelby County outside Memphis.

“I can promise you those children were her world, and if there was any inkling of danger, she would have never had those dogs near her kids,” the shattered mom’s best friend, Kelsey Canfield, told Fox News Digital. “Those children were everything to them, and they just have a really long journey ahead.”

“That attack lasted longer than any one of us could have ever imagined,” the devastated mom’s best friend, Kelsey Canfield, told Fox News Digital.

The family had the pets, Cheech and Mia, for more than eight years without a violent incident, Canfield said.

“She was initially confused. She’s awake now, and she’s aware [of what happened],” Canfield said.
