A pet bull dog belonging to a family in Florida was euthanized (put to death) after investigators say it fatally attacked a baby girl in her crib.
Emergency crews responded to a 911 call at a Dunnellon, FL, home where they found the grandfather of a 5-day-old performing CPR on the baby, Bay. The family told officials their pit bull jumped on the bed, which was next to the baby’s crib, and attacked the little girl while her grandmother was in another room.
The baby was still “somewhat responsive” when sheriff’s deputies arrived, according to the Citrus County Chronicle. She was taken via medical airlift to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Thereafter, animal control officers euthanized the dog and investigators ruled the baby’s death accidental.
