Jackal attacked baby
A British woman was facing manslaughter charges last night after a baby was savaged to death by her dog as she slept.
Mary Barton, 53, is alleged to have been in an alcohol-induced stupor when the Alsatian jumped into the cot and mauled eight-week-old Andre Bigg.
She has "a background of drink problems", according to prosecutors in the French village of Holque, near Dunkirk.
The baby belonged to Briton Belinda Bigg, 29, who has lived with Mrs Barton and her husband Allan, 60, for around ten years.
The expatriate couple are said to have regarded Miss Bigg and her son as their "adopted daughter and grandson".
At the time of the tragedy, Miss Bigg was on a trip to the UK with lorry driver Mr Barton, leaving his wife to look after the baby.
Mr Barton, who has been living in France with his wife since 1967, was reluctant to talk last night but said: "An accident's an accident and there's nothing we can do about it. I wish to Christ there was.
"We're all upset because we've just been to see the baby in his grave this morning. It's terrible. Belinda's under sedation."
Mrs Barton, her face stained with tears, burst from their cottage shouting: "This is a private matter." Then the couple's French lawyer emerged to say the family would not be making any official comment.
The five-year-old dog, called Jack, was being kept in kennels by the Dunkirk Animal Protection Society and could be put down on the orders of a French judge.
Vets are examining the animal and conducting behavioural tests before a decision is made.
Miss Bigg was born in Australia to British parents. Andre's father has not been identified.
Public prosecutor Jean-Philippe Joubert said the tragedy, which happened last Friday, was brought on by alcohol.
"The wife was looking after Andre alone when she had too much wine to drink at lunch. She has a background of drink problems and fell into an alcohol-induced stupor.
"Unfortunately she was sleeping so deeply that she did not hear the dog. It leaped into the baby's cradle and savagely mauled Andre with bites across his body.
"The wounds were irrevocable for a newborn baby and he died within minutes.
"The wife did not even stir during the attack and only realised what had happened some time later when she woke up.
"She ran screaming to the neighbours who called a doctor but it was too late.
"The gendarmerie were called and she was questioned then charged with manslaughter. She failed in her duty to care for the baby.
"A new baby and a jealous dog are a difficult mix and she should have been keeping careful watch. Sadly this tragedy is down to alcohol."
Mrs Barton has been released on bail on condition that she does not leave the area.
"The dog attacked while her lorry driver husband and the baby's mother had gone to England on a trucking job," said M Joubert.
"We contacted them and they came right back on Friday night.
"The baby's mother would often help him with his work but there was nothing scandalous about the relationship. She is like an adopted daughter to them.
"The couple are an average family who have not been in trouble here and are not unliked in the village even though they do not speak much French.
"The couple and the baby's mother are now completely grief-stricken."
The baby's grave is in the local churchyard, a small dark wood cross without a name and a couple of bouquets and a plant pot marking the scene.
A note with one bouquet said in French: "Many condolences for your child."
The Barton home overlooks the River Aa. Two tethered goats and a number of hens were in the back yard. A Renault Espace people carrier was parked on the driveway, alongside a battered caravan.
Neighbour Frederick Achte, 24, said: "The mother is still living with the Bartons. They are still friends. She is not angry with Mrs Barton. Mrs Barton is nice but she is drunk time after time."
Another neighbour, Anne Marie Carre, said Mrs Barton was banned for drink-driving "four or five years ago".

Shock after baby killed by dogs

Residents have been putting flowers and toys outside the pub
Neighbours and residents have been laying flowers outside a pub in Leicester after a five-month-old baby was killed by two Rottweiler dogs.
The girl was savaged in the living quarters of the Rocket pub in the New Parks area. Local MP Patricia Hewitt described the death as appalling.

Police are investigating how the animals came to attack the baby.

The two Rottweilers, which lived at the pub, were put down after the attack on Saturday.

A spokesman for the Leicester Coroner's Office said a post-mortem examination would be carried out on the child on Tuesday, after which an inquest into her death would be opened.

This is the most appalling tragedy and my heart goes out to the parents of this little baby who's died in such appalling circumstances

Patricia Hewitt, MP for the area

One neighbour, Rose Duke, said: "Those dogs were terrible. If I passed, they would come charging across the roof.

"They frightened the life out of anyone who passed the pub. I would not have trusted them as far as I could throw them. People are in shock."

The girl, who has not been named by police, was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary on Saturday afternoon where she later died from her injuries following the attack in Stephenson Drive, New Parks.

It is thought her parents had been looking after the pub and the animals while the landlords were on holiday.

The Rottweilers lived at the pub

The attack comes weeks after a boy aged four in Cambridgeshire had 200 stitches after being attacked by an American bulldog.

Chris Lawrence, veterinary director of the Dogs Trust, said a change in the law might be necessary to minimise the possibility of this sort of attack.

He said investigators should be examining "why these dogs behave like this, why the training of the dogs is inadequate, and addressing those sort of issues".

Patricia Hewitt, MP for the area where the attack took place, told BBC Radio Five Live: "This is the most appalling tragedy and my heart goes out to the parents of this little baby who's died in such appalling circumstances."

Dog death baby was 'little angel'

Archie-Lee Hirst died from multiple injuries
The mother of a one-year-old boy mauled to death by a family dog has paid tribute to her "little angel".
Archie-Lee Andrew Hirst was killed by the rottweiler at his grandparents' home in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

Becki Hirst, who has just turned 18, said: "My boy was my world. He is loved by many. He will always be in our hearts, never to be forgotten."

Miss Hirst said her 16-year-old sister Kara - who tried to save Archie-Lee from the dog - was a "hero".

'Sleeping angel'

She said: "We are all so proud of her - she tried.

"She's a hero in my eyes and will be respected for what she did for the rest of her life."

Miss Hirst said her son was her "sleeping angel".

She said: "All I want is to give my baby the best send off that he deserves so my little Archie can rest in peace."

The boy's aunt tried to fight off the dog in the yard of the house

Earlier Miss Hirst left a message for her son on her page on the social networking site Bebo.

It said: "RIP my lil angel mummy knows your still here love u always and foreva x x x x x x."

Archie-Lee's father, Damian Williamson, 20, also left a tribute to his son.

"Never gona 4get ya lil man, RIP 4eva n always, miss ya so much, ur mummy sez i can ave ur iggle piggle, so gna keep him in car wi me xxxxx."

Dozens of shocked friends have also left tributes on the site.

Outside the house on Sunday, Det Supt Steve Payne said the family were united in grief.

He said: "The mother and father of Archie-Lee are together today and everyone involved is all back as a family unit at this distressing time.

"Obviously, the mother's 18th birthday being today doesn't help. New Year coming up doesn't help either.

"The focus of the investigation will now be to conduct house-to-house inquiries and try to build up a picture of anything that will help the investigation."

Rescue attempt

The government has said it has no plans to add rottweilers to the list of dogs banned under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

The boy's 16-year-old aunt had been looking after Archie-Lee and her two sisters, aged six and seven, at the house in Chald Lane at the time of the attack on Friday afternoon.

She kicked and struck the dog, which police said weighed between seven and 10 stone, after it pulled the boy from the arms of the seven-year-old girl.

Mother Becki had previously written of her joy at motherhood on the Bebo site and had posted 48 pictures of 13-month-old Archie-Lee.

'Little giggle'

Under the headline "Mummy to Archie-Lee", she wrote that she loved it when he "does his little giggle".

"I don't no what I'd do if I didn't have him," she said.

"Can't wait till he's walking and talking, it will be great. I hope his first word is mummy, it would make me so happy."

Friends of his father, Damian Williamson, 20, who lives separately from Ms Hirst in the Wakefield area, have also paid tribute to Archie-Lee on his Bebo profile page.

The two-and-a-half year old rottweiler was killed by police following the attack as it was "clearly representing a potential danger to others".

6-Week-Old Killed By Family Dog

3 day old baby killed by family dog......not a pitbull

Published:Wednesday, September 24, 2008
By Ed Runyan
The parents wanted to bring the baby into the kitchen, but her bed was too large to fit through the doorway.
LEAVITTSBURG — The Trumbull County coroner’s office has ruled the death of a 3-day-old girl, killed by the family dog Monday morning, an accident.
But Dr. Humphrey Germaniuk, the county’s forensic pathologist who conducted the autopsy on the infant, said the death reinforces the need for people to understand that dogs are not people.
“An animal cannot tell the difference between a plaything and a human being,” Dr. Germaniuk said, adding that dogs are “guided by instinct” and are sometimes territorial.
The baby had been home from the hospital only one day when the family dog, a Siberian husky, pulled her from her baby bed in the parents’ bedroom and dragged her into another room, police said.
A Warren Township police report doesn’t specify what type of bed the child was in, but it says the parents had been unable to bring the baby’s bed into the kitchen with them during breakfast because it was too large to fit through the bedroom door.
The baby’s mother had fed the child before 10 a.m, put her back in her bed and had gone to the kitchen to make the family breakfast.
A little while later, at around 10 a.m., she and her husband realized the husky had the baby in its mouth in the family room, police said.
The husky complied when the husband ordered the dog to let go of the baby, but the child had suffered multiple blunt-force and sharp-force injuries and died at Forum Health Trumbull Memorial Hospital at about 10:45 a.m. The baby had been born there Friday.
Dr. Germaniuk said the baby suffered injuries to nearly all of her body, including chest, back, arms, legs and face. The baby weighed a little more than 5 pounds.
The baby had a pulse when paramedics first arrived but died either en route to or at the hospital, Dr. Germaniuk said.
The father told police he had let the dogs outside but thinks he may have let them back into the house a short time before the attack. The couple also has a beagle dog, police said.
Debbie Agostinelli, shelter director for the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County, said it appears the dog did not attack the child but more likely viewed her as a toy.
She said she has spoken with a member of the baby’s family, who said the 7-year-old dog was used to playing with squeaky toys and stuffed animals. Based on what the family member told her, it looks like the dog “simply mistook the baby for a toy,” Agostinelli said.
It’s possible the baby may have made a noise that excited the dog and made the animal want to play, she said.
Agostinelli said it is her understanding that the dog, which is being housed at Trumbull County Dog Kennel in Howland, will be euthanized.
Agostinelli said a pet killing a child is very rare. She said she’s not aware of anything like this happening in the area in many years.
She said standard advice given to parents bringing a newborn home to a house with a dog is to begin to make the dog feel comfortable with the child by introducing the baby’s smells to the dog before the baby comes home by wrapping the baby in a blanket and letting the dog smell the blanket.
And when mom and baby come home, make sure the dog gets to spend quality time with mom separate from the baby. Eventually introduce the baby and dog to each other and reward the dog for good behavior around the baby.
“The more you push the dog away from the baby, it makes the dog more intent on seeing the baby,” Agostinelli said.
Throughout this period, never leave the baby and dog unattended, she said.
Warren Township Police have not completed their investigation, Lt. Don Bishop said Tuesday.

Police say a six-week-old Lexington boy was killed Friday afternoon after he was attacked by one of his family's dogs.

The incident happened at about 3:30 p.m. at a home on Seven Pines Drive off of Alexandria Drive. Police say Justin Mozer was asleep in a bedroom when a Jack Russell terrier attacked him.

Police say the boy's mother was in another room at the time of the attack.

The boy was rushed to UK Hospital, where he later died. No official cause of death was released, pending an autopsy.

So far, no charges have been filed in the case, and police said late Friday that they do not expect to file charges against any of the infant's family.

The Jack Russell terrier and a pit bull were taken from the home by Animal Control officials.
