Also from Yahoo News, a 6-week-old pit bull puppy gnawed four toes off a 1-month-old baby girl in Louisiana. The kid was in an infant carrier on the floor next to the mattress where the parents were sleeping. The vet said the dog was probably trying to nurse, and that it probably took at least an hour. The breeder said it was odd, because the dog wasn't the "chewy" one in the litter. The parents have told several different versions of how it happened.
