LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say a toddler has been fatally
bitten in a dog attack at his home.
Police say the 2-year-old boy was attacked Wednesday afternoon by one, or perhaps both, of the family's mix-breed terriers. Police spokesman Bill Cassell says the dog weighed about 45 pounds and
might be a type of pit bull.
The boy and his younger brother were in their grandmother's care at the time of the attack. The younger child was unhurt, and the grandmother suffered superficial injuries.
The boy was not immediately identified.
