Police Chief Bill McManus says the grandmother was getting ready to feed the boy Tuesday morning and went to her kitchen for his bottle. When she returned her dogs were attacking the baby.
The woman got a knife and stabbed one of the dogs, and got the child away.
The chief says the dogs then attacked the grandmother before she managed to get them outside.
Police killed the dogs in her backyard.
Authorities said the child was dead at University Hospital. Police said the grandmother was being treated at the hospital.
Police did not identify the family or say if charges would be filed.
I feel for the grandmother because she reacted as soon as she saw that the dogs were attacking the baby. However, she should not have left the dogs for one sec. alone with the baby apparently within reach of the dogs. I know all she did was go to the kitchen to get the bottle but all it takes is one sec. She did react get a knife and tried to stabbed them more than I can say for some mothers. So she did try to fend them off and even got hurt in the process. May this baby RIP and I'm so sorry the baby's life ended so tragically and soon. My prayers are also with the grandmother to heal quickly and I hope they don't press charges against her.
