A DOG IN POLICE CUSTODY AFTER MAULING A BABY TO DEATH IN BED WITH PARENTS

It sounds like a joke…but this is a heart-breaking story that could make you think twice about your adored pet.

A 3-day-old boy was mauled to death by the family dog while they were in bed with the child’s parents, police said Friday.

The parents were in bed watching TV with their new-born son and dog at night when the mother coughed. The coughing startled the dog and it unexpectedly bit the baby, Sgt. Tu Nguyen said.

He said the parents pulled the animal off and took their only child to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“At this time, we’re looking at this as nothing more than a tragic incident,” said Nguyen, a member of the child abuse unit.

An autopsy is underway to determine the cause of death.
