Family Dog Impounded After Mauling Newborn Baby

On Thursday night in San Diego, California, a 3-year-old baby was mauled to death by a pet dog in front of his parents. Sgt. Tu Nguyen of the police department’s child abuse unit told the San Diego Tribune that the incident happened in the city’s Mira Mesa neighborhood.

Nguyen says the family was watching TV together when the mother coughed and startled the American Staffordshire terrier-Great Dane mix.

The dog reacted by mauling the baby before the parents were able to pull the dog off of the newborn. They rushed their baby to the hospital where he was declared dead.

Nguyen shared, “At this time it appears to be a tragic accident. It’s such a horrific, tragic case.” The family's names have not been released. San Diego county animal services have since impounded the two-year-old male dog, which will be held in quarantine for 10 days pending test results for rabies.
