No doubt the dog will be put down. But the owners should not be allowed to own another dog for years to come. Dog attacks usually happen because the owners have not trained their dog properly. Or they received it from a rescue with no history and as such have no idea what might trigger a fear attack. No idea how old the child is, but it’s one of the reasons overseas rescues do not re-home to families with children under 5yrs old. It’s too high a risk.
