DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

A horrible case of animal cruelty and abuse in Detroit. A puppy is mauled by pit bulls. Neighbors say they tried to call for help but help never arrived.

Click on the video player to watch Randy Wimbley's report.

People living in the neighborhood on Detroit's west side are upset and unnerved over what they witnessed. A warning, the video may be disturbing. It happened Saturday afternoon. Neighbors say the puppy didn't have a chance in a backyard full of hungry pit bulls. Reginald Bolden had the misfortune of witnessing the attack.

"I ain't never seen nothing like that. I got kids that live back here," he told Fox 2. "I'm not trying to have them go through nothing like this."

An alley separates his home from the scene where the puppy was killed. Neighbors could hear the dogs cries from inside their house. We talked to another neighbor who called 911 and animal control but says no one responded.

We went to the home where the puppy was attacked but no one came to the door. Neighbors believe this has happened before. They hope police will investigate and prevent it from happening again. They fear a child or someone else will get hurt.
