In Florida a pit bull climbed into a crib and fatally attacked a 5-day-old girl. The Citrus County Chronicle reports the attack took place early last week and the authorities are investigating the girl’s death as accidental and no criminal charges are expected to be filed.
When deputies arrived to the home they found a family member performing CPR on the newborn, who at the time was still responsive. The little girl was then taken to a local hospital and was pronounced dead.
A relative told authorities that the pit bull jumped on the bed that was next to the babies bassinet and started attacking her.
Animal control officers euthanized the pit bull at an animal shelter.
