Very sad indeed. I don't like to judge until we know the full facts, but it does sound like another preventable death

No, we don't know the whole story. The mother also sustained injuries. Maybe she attempted to intervene too late.

She was in the bath, they had been living in the house around a week or so, the dog belonged to another person who lived in the house, and she left her children alone with it

The story has changed, they now claim she was cuddling the baby when the dog ripped him from her arms, very odd.
