A 3-week-old baby was mauled to death by a 2-year-old pit bull (pictured above) on Detroit’s west side Thursday evening, the Detroit Free Press reports. Neither the baby nor her parents has been named at this point.
Local police say that the mother went to a home and took the infant inside with her. She placed the baby, still strapped in her car seat, on the floor. The mother reportedly did not know that there was a dog running loose inside of the home.
