The police reveals that the mother of the child had thought the two dogs which are shar-pei and pit bull mixes owned by her 30-year-old brother, were chained in the yard and did not pose a threat to the little girl.
Sgt. Dan Macias of the Fresno Police Department disclosed to the Fresno Bee, saying:
"She left the door open because it was hot and she thought the dogs were tied up."
The tragic incident is reported to have taken place on Monday, June 27, 2016 at about 12:30 a.m.
The toddler was reportedly rushed to the Community Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The owner of the dogs, one of which is reported to have always been aggressive, has reportedly surrendered the dogs to the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, where they were due to be euthanized.
May her sour rest in peace.
