California was mauled to death by
her family's dogs early Monday,
The infant's 33-year-old mother
thought the two dogs(above) — reported as shar-pei and pit bull
mixes ,were restrained in the yard
and did not pose a threat, police
"She left the door open because it was hot and she thought the dogs were tied up," Sgt. Dan Macias with the Fresno Police Department told
the Fresno Bee. The unidentified mom left the baby on the couch and "walked away for a few seconds" when the tragic attack took place around 12:30 a.m. Monday, Macias said.
The baby was rushed to Community Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
The male dogs were owned by the
woman's 30-year-old brother, police said.
One of the dogs was known to
be aggressive, the woman told police.
The dog's owner reportedly
surrendered them to the Central
California Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals, where they
were due to be euthanized.
