A baby girl has been mauled to death by a pet dog at a home in Coventry. West Midlands Police said they were called to a property at Shorncliffe Road shortly after 3pm on Sunday (June 16).

Despite receiving treatment at the scene by paramedics and being rushed to hospital for further treatment, the seven-month-old baby died a short time later. The pet dog, which isn’t classed as a dangerous breed, was removed from the home on Sunday and humanely destroyed.

The police said they are still in the early stages of their investigation as their enquiries are continuing. The force added: “Anyone with any information should contact us via live chat on our website or by calling 101 quoting log 2407 of 16 June.”
