NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Authorities say a 20-month-old Florida boy was attacked and killed by a Rottweiler.
Kevin Doll, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office spokesman, says the toddler was at a home during a party Saturday night when the dog somehow got inside.
The dog then attacked the boy, whose name was not released. People at the house managed to pry the dog off the child, and family members then took him to a nearby hospital. He later died.
Animal control has taken possession of the dog.
