This is a sad one. A 3-week old girl was killed by a pit bull this week, when her mother left her in a car seat on the floor of friend’s home. Police say that the baby’s mother left the baby on the floor, not knowing that there was a dog loose in the house. When the mother returned, the dog was mauling the baby. They took the child to the hospital, but she died from her injuries.
The dog has been taken out of the house. Police say that the case has been turned over to the homicide division. Sgt Eren Stephens says that prosecutors will decide to file criminal charges.
“It seems like maybe just a tragic accident,” Stephens said.
This is the latest in a string of dog attacks against infants that have taken place in the city of Detroit. A Maryland court recently ruled that Pitbulls are inherently dangerous animals, risking harm to children and adults in the household. Many experts, however, disagree with the ruling. One thing that’s for sure is that when these dogs attack, they can be ferocious. Protect your children at all costs.
