Mia Derouen was attacked by one of her two dogs in her Houma, LA home.

Derouen was pounced on by the 130lb dog, one of two at the home in the Houma Highland Apartments in Houma, Louisiana, and died in hospital from her injuries, according to Houma Police Chief Todd Duplantis.

Police officers were called to the apartment complex around 7 p.m. Tuesday by the girl’s mother, Megan Touchet, who was also injured as she desperately fought the crazed dog off her child…

Mia suffered facial and head injuries in the pit bull attack and was rushed to Terrebonne General Medical Center but didn’t make it.

Touchet suffered moderate injuries and was hospitalized as well. She remains in hospital today…

The animal, named Niko, was shot dead by police before they were able to enter the apartment.

Duplantis described it as ‘a monster,’ in a Wednesday afternoon press conference.
