MEZHDURECHENSK, RUSSIA (BNO NEWS) -- A grandmother committed suicide in southern Russia on Saturday after two dogs mauled a one-year-old baby to death, local media reported on Monday.
The tragedy happened on Saturday at a home in Mezhdurechensk, a city in Russia's Kemerovo Oblast, when a one-year-old baby boy was left alone at a home. He is believed to have walked or crawled to a room where two dogs, a Staffordshire terrier and a pitbull, were kept.
The Russian ITAR-TASS news agency, citing police, reported that the boy's grandmother committed suicide after she found the lifeless body. It was not immediately known if the boy was in the care of the grandmother or how long and why he was left alone.
Governor Aman Tuleyev has taken personal control of the investigation and questioned whether certain dogs should be banned. "This country has seen of late a wave of accidents in which dogs attacked people and such situations are especially appalling when small kids are victimized," the governor said.
