Rottweiler fatally attacks 2-year-old girl

June 25, 2006


— A 2-year-old girl was fatally mauled by a dog owned by an employee of an animal adoption service, authorities said.

Authorities believe Gemma Liliana Carlos wandered away from a caretaker's home Thursday morning.

She was reported missing, and her body was found near a doghouse by a deputy who shot and killed the dog to get to the child.

The Rottweiler's owner works for a nonprofit animal adoption service called Pet Guardian Angel.

The dog was vaccinated and was tied legally in an unfenced back yard, said Lorenzo Hinojos, animal control program manager.
