NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — A rottweiler attacked and killed a Florida toddler when the boy reached to pick up a cookie he had dropped, authorities said.
Kevin Doll of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said 20-month-old Dallas Walters was at his aunt's home during a party Saturday night. Doll said the dog attacked Dallas when the boy dropped a cookie and went to grab it.
Family members at the party managed to pry the dog off the child and then took him to a hospital. The boy later died.
Animal control has taken possession of the dog.
So sad! Another resource guarder, and as we all know resource guarders are very dangerous.( ANd Dallas is my niece's name, first time since the movie "The Outsiders" that I have heard of a little boy named Dallas.)
