Dog That Attacked 1-Year-Old Has Been Euthanized

EVERGREEN, Colo. (CBS4) – The dog that attacked and critically injured a 1-year-old in Evergreen was euthanized on Saturday.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said the 70 pound American Bulldog was “humanely euthanized at the request of the owner.”

On Tuesday animal control officers removed the dog from its home in Evergreen after it attacked the child.

A sample from the dog will be tested to rule out the possibility of rabies.

The dog lived in the home with the child and the rest of the family.

The child is in critical condition.
