A Toddler Was Just Mauled By The Family Dog, The Truth About The Animal Is Absolutely Tragic…


A joyful day of bonding turned into tragedy when a family’s attempt to introduce their toddler to their new dog resulted in a horrific, life-altering event.

The excitement of a family introducing their seventeen-month-old daughter Bella-Rae Birch to their newly acquired dog turned to unimaginable horror when the canine fatally mauled the infant, leaving the family devastated to their core.

The tragic incident took place on Monday afternoon at the family’s residence on Bidston Avenue in Blackbrook, St. Helens, Merseyside, United Kingdom. At around 3:50 pm, the attack unfolded, and the baby girl was rushed to the nearest hospital. Unfortunately, she could not survive the severe injuries inflicted by the dog.

Witnesses described the heart-wrenching scene, with mother Treysharn Bates standing outside the home, crying hysterically. In the aftermath, family members and friends arrived at the home with flowers to show their support and love for little Bella-Rae, who would be sorely missed.

The grieving family took to social media to express their pain, emphasizing how “much loved” and cherished Bella-Rae was, and that she “will be sadly missed but never forgotten.” In a statement released through the police, the family expressed gratitude for the community’s support and requested privacy as they attempted to come to terms with the tragic loss of Bella-Rae.

Following the fatal attack, the dog responsible has been euthanized. Authorities are now investigating the canine’s previous owner to determine if the dog had violated the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. Neighbors described the breed as either a Staffordshire Bull Terrier or Pitbull Terrier.

A trainee paramedic, known only as Jordan, who lived nearby, returned home to find “around twenty police cars” on the street. She immediately rushed to perform CPR on Bella-Rae until on-duty paramedics could take over.

Jordan recounted the traumatic scene, saying, “I heard screaming, and I ran over. I tried to help. People were everywhere. They were crying and screaming. The baby wasn’t well. I tried to help her. ‘I started CPR, which I did for around 30 seconds. It was just myself. Then the paramedics took over. The parents were hysterical. I didn’t see the dog. We don’t really go up there. I don’t know how I feel now.”

Merseyside Police Superintendent Steve Brizell expressed his condolences in a statement, saying, “Bella-Rae has lost her life in the most unimaginably terrible circumstances, and our thoughts are first and foremost with the family and the wider community at this devastating time.”
