Dog Mauls 2-Month Old to Death
Feb. 2, 2017
Earlier this month, a family pet mauled a 2-month old to death in San Marcos, Texas. The family had owned the dog for eight years since it was a puppy. The father fell asleep on the couch with the infant in a bouncer. When he awoke, he found his child’s body covered in bites. The family claims the dog had never shown any signs of aggression prior to the deadly attack. Stories like this are heartbreaking.
Approximately ten to twenty children die each year from dog attacks. Parents should not leave infants and young children unattended with a dog, especially when the dog has not been raised with children. The majority of deadly attacks involve pit bulls or pit bull mixes.
