Dog That Killed Baby Boy Will Be Euthanized
A family dog that inflicted fatal injuries on a 3-week old baby will be euthanized.
According to the BDN, there will be no charges filed in the attack that happened July 29th, to an Aroostook County family who was visiting relatives on Bangor's west side. The mother, father, baby, and dog were all sleeping in the same room, when the couple woke up at around 5:30 a.m. to the sight of the husky/shepherd mix attacking the infant.
The dog has been quarantined at the Bangor Humane Society ever since the attack. The case is considered closed and so the animal will be euthanized. Police say the dog has never been aggressive before.
