The Washington Examiner.com reports that a 20-month old Florida boy was attacked and killed by a Rottweiler dog.
According to the report, the toddler, Dallas Walters, was at his aunt’s house when he dropped a cookie. When the boy went to pick up the cookie, the dog bit and attacked him.
Family members pried the dog off of the toddler but he died of his injuries at a hospital.
Every year approximate 26 people are killed because of vicious dogs. It is estimated that 4.5 million Americans suffer dog bite injuries every year and 1 in 5 of those will require medical treatment.
