In Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a six-week-old baby died as a result of bites by the family dog. The tragedy occurred on Thursday afternoon.
According to KeloNews, the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, first responders arrived at the victim’s home and found the child with several bite wounds. He was flown to the hospital via helicopter where he died as a result of his injuries.
The family dog, a Belgian Malinois, was taken to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society. It has not been determined why the dog bit the child, however Sheriff Sgt. Zachary Cegelske stated it was a tragic loss for the family and a “very sad situation.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics warns parents to avoid leaving young children alone with a dog. It doesn’t matter how good the dog is – not for even a moment.
Rest in peace.
