4 thoughts on “2018 Dog Bite Fatality: Baby Killed by Family Dog While Under Her Grandmother's Care

  1. And I bet the family previously had said how "sweet" their dogs were and that they only thing they were capable of was "licking you to death." RIP baby girl, another child sacrificed because of an adult's "pride" in owning a dangerous animal.

  2. Sherman Oaks isn't exactly what one would call a ghetto. It's one of the most affluent parts of the LA area.

    That being said, permit me to share an observation from Tucson: I'm seeing a lot of pit bulls in affluent areas. I would assume that a lot of them are "rescues." Our local humane society and animal control are aggressively marketing pit bulls to the community. Alas, a lot of people fall for this misleading sales pitch.

    It's only a matter of time before our community experiences a similar tragedy. And it would be as likely to happen in the Catalina Foothills as it would on the South Side.
