Susannah Jean Murray of Grand Rapids, Michigan was born on May 4, 2017 and on May 26th she was killed after one of her family’s three pit bulls attacked her while she was left unattended with the dogs.
Authorities said she was left alone in a bouncy when one of the dogs attacked her.
Adults in the house say they had just checked on Susannah five minutes earlier and she was fine. She suffered severe injuries, including a bite to her head, which an autopsy confirmed is what killed her.
One of the family’s pit bulls was found with blood on its mouth, reports said.
Susannah was taken to the hospital and underwent surgery but she died hours later, she was just three-weeks old.
Residents who lived in the neighborhood told the Detroit Free Press that the dogs were a dangerous nuisance, calling them “mean and vicious.”
“I’d be scared, because when the dogs get out the fence, they used to chase us,” one neighbor told the paper.
Police took all three dogs to be quarantined at the local animal shelter after the attack.
Grand Rapids Police Department spokesman Sgt. Terry Dixon says,
“This serves as a critical reminder to never leave a child unattended around a dog.”
