The family of a baby mauled to death by a pet Jack Russell terrier at his grandparents’ home in Ketley, England, asked for privacy while police investigate.
The dog attacked 8-day-old Harry Harper at his grandparents’ home. He later died from his injuries at The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
The child’s mother Mikayla, 19, was staying with her parents, Gordon Bell, 42, and Teresa, 40, when the attack occurred. Her boyfriend lives a short distance away.
The dog was put down.
