The male pit bull was about a year old. The family’s owned the pit bull since it was a young puppy. Nieghbors report that the family actually owns 2 pit bulls. Witnesses also claim that the pit bull who was responsible for the baby’s death, was biting police when they tried to remove the dog from it’s home. Other neighbors offer a contrary depiction of the dog, saying that they never saw the dog being aggressive, even around other children.
Police are currently saying it’s unlikely that the mother will be charged as there were no signs of neglect. Police also described the scene as “the worst thing they’d ever seen”. Apparently, the baby’s condition was horrific and grotesque, making police offers cringe. The dog has since been euthanized.
