8-month-old baby girl dies after she was attacked by pet dog in Florida
An 8-month-old baby girl died Wednesday in Miramar, Fla., after she was attacked by a family dog, local police said. The infant was in the care of her grandmother at the time of the attack, Miramar Police Officer Yessenia Diaz told USA TODAY. The family owns three pit bulls — a mother, one male sibling and one female sibling. The grandmother was walking the dogs when the male dog, which police said was 3 or 4-years-old, got away from her and attacked the baby who was bobbing in a bouncy chair in one of the bedrooms.
