Penticton Herald - - CANADA -

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.”
