Boy dies after dog attack

by

WALWORTH, Wisc (WSAU)   A 14-month-old boy died after he was attacked by two pit bulls near Walworth in far southeast Wisconsin. Walworth County sheriff’s deputies were told that both the infant and a 30-year-old Susan Iwicki were being attacked by pit bulls that the woman owned. It happened just before noon yesterday, and the young boy died three-and-a-half hours later at a Milwaukee area hospital. Both victims suffered multiple injuries.

Authorities did not say if-or-how they were related.

Relatives said Iwicki was baby-sitting the child at the time.

Officials said the dogs were taken from the property and euthanized. Deputies continue to investigate.

It’s been almost 11 years since a Wisconsin child was reported to be fatally attacked by pit bulls. 10-year-old Alicia Clark was mauled by six Rottweilers in 2002 at a friend’s home at Elroy.
