A 20-month boy from Florida is dead after a vicious dog bite attack by a Rottweiler dog. According to the AP, the toddler was at home during a party when the dog was somehow allowed into the house. The dog then proceeded to attack the boy, with family members trying to pry the dog off the child. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. The dog was seized by animal control.
It is unusual to see such a vicious dog attack. However, statistically, young children more often end up on the losing end of a dog bite because of their small size and the inability to fight off an attacking dog. My prayers go out to the family of this boy. This is a terrible tragedy.
