Granite Bay, CA – A baby boy is dead after being attacked by a family pit bull, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to a home in Granite Bay just after 3:00 pm Friday after a report of a dog mauling a 13-month old baby. The child was at home with a family member when the dog attacked. The person was able to free the baby from the dog and called 911. The child was transported to Roseville Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead – DogsBite.org

Placer County Sheriffs Department deputies responded immediately, but there was little they could do. “When deputies responded to the scene, the relative that was watching the child was able to get the child away from the dog,” said Placer County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Lt. Andrew Scott.. “There doesn’t appear to be any neglect; there doesn’t appear to be anything that provoked the dog; it was just a horrific circumstance that occurred,“ said Scott. – CBS 13 Sacramento
