A life just three days old is gone.
A newborn girl home one day from the hospital was attacked and killed by the family dog.
"The father was there, turned away for a second, dog snatched baby out of bassinet ," said Warren Twp. police Chief Thomas Rush.
Police said this was the couple's first child.
Police suspect the seven-year-old Siberian husky wasn't used to the baby yet and grabbed her by accident.
"The dog got into bassinet took her in his mouth. There were wounds to the baby ," Rush said.
The dog warden has custody of the husky and even though this is a suspected accident the dog will be be put down.
