Generally speaking, Texas has a "one bite rule." Animals can be unpredictable, so an animal without a history of incidents biting someone is typically excused. After that, however, the animal is known to be a risk, so owners have a duty to keep them from getting loose or attacking someone. Failing to take those steps means those owners can be responsible for the animal's actions. Could it be this tragic event was the result of negligent owners? There are no doubt folks out there that deserve some answers.
