Pet Pit Bull Kills Three-Year-Old Girl
A North Carolina family’s pet pit bull killed 3-year-old Braelynn Rayne Coulter as the two were playing. She died of injuries sustained to her lower abdomen.
The dog, a male, was transported to the Guilford County Animal Shelter. He will likely be euthanized within the next few weeks, after police complete their investigation.
A family spokesperson said the dog has never been aggressive before and was a loving family pet, but neighbors said they had witnessed it attack other dogs and didn’t allow their child out to play if the dog was outside.
