Fatal Dog Attack on 2-Year-Old

As Alexander Adams’ grandmother was walking the family’s dog food bowl into a room where the dog normally eats something triggered him to turn on the young 2-year-old boy and fatally maul him. "While it's possible that the presence of food, combined with the young victim in the area where the dog was normally fed, triggered the attack, there is nothing definitive that can be determined," officer Bill Cassell said. The boy was dead by the time medical responders arrived. The grandmother, who was watching Alexander and his younger brother while their parents were away, suffered minor injuries. Las Vegas Animal Control officers seized the dog and another pit bull at the home after the Nov. 26 attack.
