Mother Put Her Newborn Down On The Couch For A Nap - Will Forever Regret That Decision

A newborn infant was killed in an attack by two family dogs in California, according to police.

The mom of the child opened the back door at close to 12:30 am "to let some cool air come in the house," Sergeant Daniel Macias of the Fresno Police Department noted.

The mom assumed the two dogs in the backyard were chained up, so she put her newborn on the couch and went to the bathroom.

The woman said she heard her baby, named Susie Kirby, screaming just moments later. She ran to the child, but by the time she got there it was too late.

"Unknown to her, the dogs were loose and one of them was able to get inside and ended up biting the infant," Macias commented.

The woman's brother called EMS.

Unfortunately, the infant died despite being rushed to Community Regional Medical Center.

"They were very upset that night, and obviously very distraught over the situation," Macias continued.

Apparently, both dogs were owned by the brother of the baby’s mom. The dog believed to have killed the child was a shar-pei and pit bull mix, and was described as the “guard dog" of the residence.

The dogs were surrendered to the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and they will be euthanized.
