Rottweiler attacks and kills TV star’s stepchild
A Rottweiler owned by a star on the reality show “Ax Men” attacked and killed his stepdaughter on Sunday. The four-year old girl was found injured in her yard by her mother and taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. The family owns two Rottweilers, both of which were quarantined after this incident.
The tragic loss sustained by this family is not an isolated event. Government studies show that Rottweilers and Pitbulls are involved in more fatal attacks by dogs than any other breed. A disproportionate number of children are involved in fatal dog attacks. The Center for Disease Control Provides the following information on how to avoid dog bites for children:
