A 16-month-old toddler was mauled to death by an ‘agitated’ pit bull while staying at her uncle’s home.
Kavay Louis-Calderon was inside the family home when a man, believed to be her uncle, was having an argument with a woman outside the property.
One of the two pit bulls at home became agitated during the fight, police said.
According to reports, Kavay was being looked after by her uncle when the devastating incident happened.
She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
A neighbor who heard the toddler screaming while she was being attacked by a pit bull told WKYC: “That’s what I can’t get out of my head – her screaming.
“And the 911 operator carrying that baby out – that will always be with me.”
The neighbor also said that he would not let his grandchildren play outside because he did not know whether the dogs were outside or inside the house.
Police said that the woman arguing with the man had left the property and the uncle had returned inside his house when he saw what had occurred.
“He ran back outside the house and asked a neighbor to call 911,” the police spokesperson said.
The officer added that “nobody wanted this to happen,” saying he was “reluctant” to lay blame on anyone.
Earlier this week, a baby was left with a big chunk of her cheek missing after a dog attacked her in British Colombia.
RosieMay Fitchett, 11 months, was petting two small dogs at the beach while her aunt was carrying her when a big dog suddenly attacked her.
The dog bit a huge chunk of her cheek just under her eye, leaving a large open wound. She has since undergone several operations to rebuild her face.
