Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan, Another Killed by Dog

Onion and Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan

Another baby was killed by a dog this week.  Baby Jeremiah from Louisiana, just learning to walk, tried to use the family dog, Onion, to pull himself up onto his feet.  The dog reacted by grabbing the baby’s head with his mouth and shaking.

This is mostly sad because an innocent baby’s life was lost due to a preventable accident.  I am also sad, though, because Onion was just startled out of his nap and reacted on instinct.  He does not deserve to die either.  No parent should leave this young of a child within reach of this big of a dog.  It should be a crime.  Even the best-behaved dog could do something like this.

Aiden McGrew, Killed by Dog

Aiden McGrew

I am sure everyone in the country has heard the story of little Aiden McGrew recently.  He was the 2-month-old baby that was ultimately killed by a dog in South Carolina.

This is particularly tragic for me as a resident of South Carolina.  It also makes me especially angry.  I can think of no reason why a parent would leave a baby unprotected in the living room while they slept in the bedroom.  I am further dumbfounded when you add to that a dog that the family had only had a short time and had no way of knowing whether it was safe to have around children.  Well, both the baby boy and the dog are now dead and the sleepy father is being charged with unlawful neglect of a child.

Protect your children.  NEVER leave your child unsupervised with a dog.
