On November 8, two dogs—a Rottweiler and a cow dog—attacked Jyedon at Cowra's Country Gardens Motor Inn in the NSW central-west, tragically killing him. Before being hauled free by motel owner Matt McIIIhatton, who took the boy to the hospital with his mother, the animals tore at Jyedon's face and neck, inflicting fatal injuries. Several hours after receiving his injuries, the young child passed away. The two canines were put to sleep, according to the police, and an inquiry into their deaths is ongoing.

Police will look into accusations that the child was attacked while playing with the dogs in a secure yard area behind the hotel. The animals suddenly came out from the gate and attacked the kid in the "split second" that his mother departed, according to Jyedon's relatives, who refuted their assertions. "Jyedon was riding his scooter out the front of their room and Kesha went inside to get him a drink," Jyedon's uncle Robert said. "In that split second, the dogs have either jumped over the gate or run out after it was left open and attacked Jyedon."
