A family dog attacked and killed a New Orleans toddler on Monday evening.
The local police said the dog killed 13-month-old Apollo Duplantis at his family’s home in the Pontchartrain Park neighborhood.
The victim was rushed to the nearest hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The dog was later shot dead after it attacked one of the officers from the Louisiana SPCA.
The rookie cop, fresh out of the police academy, was trying to leash the dog when the animal tried to bite him.
