1. “No words to describe the scene”: A 12-month-old girl has been killed by a Rottweiler in New South Wales’ northwest.
Family says a mother “fought with every ounce of her being” to save a little girl who was killed by a Rottweiler in the northwest of New South Wales on Saturday afternoon.
According to The Daily Telegraph, 12-month-old Kamillah Jones was in a stroller being pushed by her mother along a street in Inverell when the dog attacked.
It’s believed Kamillah and her mother were on their way to a relative’s house for a Saturday barbecue when Kamillah was killed.
The dog inflicted critical in juries on the little girl, who, despite the desperate efforts of paramedics, died on the way to hospital.
Kamillah’s aunt, Ida Boney, wrote on Facebook there were “no words to describe a scene where a mother is fighting with every ounce of her being to save her baby girl”.
“Our family have lost our baby girl who never got a chance to live her life,” she wrote.
Ida also wrote the dog did not belong to any member of the family, despite police confirming the Rottweiler was owned by one of Kamillah’s relatives.
“The dog in question actually cleared a fenced yard – someone else’s dog not our family’s,” she wrote.
