3-Month-Old Baby Dies After She Is Mauled By Dog

SHERMAN OAKS (CBSLA) -- An infant girl died Saturday after she was mauled by a dog in a Sherman Oaks home, police said.

The attack happened at 3:25 p.m. in the 14400 block of Benefit Street.

The three-month-old was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Authorities later announced that the baby died at the hospital from her injuries.

According to LAPD Police Services Officer Stacy Ball, there were three dogs in the home and police did not know which one mauled the infant.

Subsequently, all three dogs were taken into custody by animal control officers.

The attack happened when the baby's grandmother, who was babysitting at the time, stepped away to get a bottle, the Associated Press reported Sunday.
