In West Haven, Connecticut, NBC News is reporting that a 20-month-old toddler has been killed in an attack by as many as three pit bulls. The toddler was visiting her aunt’s apartment at the time. Police were called to the scene that evening and told the girl had been bitten by a dog. She was unconscious when paramedics arrived and pronounced dead at the hospital.
The dogs belonged to the toddler’s aunt who said that they had never before been aggressive. Despite the lack of aggression, police were told that the dogs had been locked in another room during the girl’s visit, but they somehow managed to escape. Police are still trying to determine who may have been present during the actual attack.
The details of the case remain under investigation. All three dogs have already been euthanized.
