This family didn’t know it, but their dogs would eat their last meal just three days after their new baby arrived home. A new mother has a lot to deal with, everything can be so overwhelming, usually protectiveness over your child is one of the few things no one needs to teach you, not for this woman. She left the door open at her home because it was hot, the baby was on the couch when her mother left for a few seconds. That’s all it took for the pit bull mix dogs to find their afternoon snack. The distraught mom assumed her dogs were tied up, but she assumed wrong…
The baby died at a hospital shortly after the attack Monday.
Macias says the two male dogs, which are believed to be a mix of shar-pei and pit bull are owned by the 33-year-old woman’s brother. He surrendered the dogs to the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. SPCA spokesman Walter Salvari says the dogs will be euthanized.
It’s baffling to me that her motherly instincts wouldn’t have kicked in before her brand new baby arrived home. She should have kicked those dogs to the curb prior to her bundle of joy being welcomed home. Why take the chance that a dangerous pet like that could get lose?! Charges against the parents have not been ruled out.
