In Detroit yesterday Mother Lucillie has told of the moment the animals ripped her son away Said she fell on boy to protect him and was bitten but couldn't save him Four dogs then dragged Xavier under a fence and mauled him to death Officers shot three of the animals to stop the attack, then seized another The mother of a four-year-old boy who was pulled from her arms before being mauled to death by a pack of pit bulls has spoken of her heartbreak at the boy's traumatizing death.
          Lucillie Strickland, from Detroit, Michigan, was walking with her son, Xavier, to volunteer at a nearby school yesterday when four dogs crawled out from underneath a fence and attacked the boy.
