CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — Police said a family's dog had to be euthanized after it mauled their 5-month-old daughter to death.

According to the Clayton County Police Department, officers were called to a home off Watts Road in Forest Park in the early morning hours of June 10 after getting a frantic 911 call.

When they got there, the family told officers their German Shephard attacked the infant.

The family told police they put the 5-month-old to sleep, and left her under the supervision of their roommate while they left for a few hours.

When they got home, they found the roommate asleep, and when they went to check on the baby, she had been mauled to death.

The family said the dog had been around the baby since her birth and had never shown any aggression toward her or anyone else in the home.

Animal Control officers from the county removed the dog from the home, and it has since been euthanized.

Police finished their investigation and determined that there was no unlawful act or neglect that had been committed by anyone inside the home. No one has been charged.
