Police: Dog Attacks Toddler, Mauls Neighbor’s Dog To Death; 1 Arrested

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A deadly dog-on-dog attack ended in the arrest of the dead dog’s owner in the 4500 block of Furley Avenue in Baltimore Friday, police say.

Officers were called to the scene around 8:20 a.m., and say it appears the dog first attacked a 2-year-old child who was visiting the home.

The dog then ran to another home on the block and attacked a dog in that home, which died as a result of the attack.

Ree Foster cannot believe her beloved Wynter is gone.

“I waited for the call to say she’s OK and just needs to go to the hospital, she has a couple bruises, but when they said she was dead, that traumatized me, I don’t know how I’m going to sleep,” Foster said.

The Bichon Yorkie mix was mauled in her own yard.

Foster’s brother then allegedly attacked the owner of the first dog. He was arrested on the scene and charged with aggravated assault.

“I couldn’t see it, I couldn’t see her like that,” Foster said. “I couldn’t until everything was cleaned up, I can’t see her like that. It’s so sad, can no other dog replace her I’m so mad I would never allow another dog big or small to do that to another dog.”

The child who was attacked, a relative of the attacking dog’s owner, is being treated for his injuries.

Animal control responded to the scene and took both dogs.

    Tracey , how come you showed a picture of the dead dog and identified its breed but you did not identify the breed of the dog that mauled the toddler and killed the B/Yorkie ?????

  2. Why is CBS not identifying the breed of the attacking dog? Seems like that would be important.
