Minnesota newborn in car seat dies after being bitten by dog

itemprop

A 10-day-old Independence boy died Thursday after the family's Siberian husky bit the child, police said.

The newborn was in his car seat in a bedroom when the bite occurred. Police received a call around 12:30 p.m. Thursday about a dog bite to a newborn and authorities arrived to find the boy not breathing.

After trying all live-saving measures, the infant was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and the medical examiner's office are investigating the death.

Apparently other dogs can be dangerous, not just pit bulls. And don't blame it on jealousy of the new baby. Canine psychologist Kathleen Martin says dogs don't feel jealous. That's a human emotion, folks. Animal behaviorist Peter Neville gives three reasons why dogs attack babies: mixed signals, hunter instinct, and defense.

It's called a dog's epic failure in our books. Kill your owner's No. 1 love in life and you'll get yourself put down ASAP.
