A 3-day-old baby from Cape Town had died. Police say that she was mauled to death by the family’s dogs.
Here’s what happened. Police say that the baby’s mother walked away from her child for just a few seconds, believing the dogs were tied up. The dogs were not, and they reportedly attacked the tiny baby. When the mother heard the baby’s cries it was TOO LATE. According to one report, the baby was “ripped to pieces.”
The dogs, which are mixed breeds – half shar-pei and half pit bull – are expected to be killed.
For those wondering, this is what a shar-pei looks like.
