Saskatchewan boy dies in dog attack
RICETON, Sask. — A Saskatchewan family says it has “lost the light” of their lives after a little boy was killed in a dog attack.
The six-year-old boy was found dead after RCMP and emergency medical personnel responded to a call Wednesday evening in Riceton, about 50 kilometres southeast of Regina.
Two large-breed dogs, reported to police to be Alaskan malamutes, were seized by the Regina Humane Society.
“The circumstances of the incident are currently being investigated by Milestone RCMP,” Staff Sgt. Rob Embree said Thursday in Regina. “This includes investigation into what may have prompted the attack. It is unclear whether one or both dogs were involved.”
