A child should never be left unsupervised with a dog. For any length of time. Period.
It’s a simple message but sometimes we all need reminding:
Police seized the family’s Alaskan malamute after the incident, in the village of Pontyberem in Camarthenshire, south Wales. It is understood that the baby’s father, Patric Mullane, had purchased the dog at the local pub.
Police were treating the death as a “tragic incident’’ and Ms John and Mr Mullane were not being treated as suspects, a spokesman said.”
Incidentally Alaskan malamute is a working breed which requires strong and consistent training and discipline – not for the beginner.
