(Springfield Township, MI) -- An infant is dead after being mauled by his family's dog. Authorities say the two-and-a-half-month-old boy was attacked by the dog Sunday morning. Police say an 18-year-old uncle was holding the child on the couch when the three-and-a-half-year-old female Catahoula cattle hound attacked the baby's head and throat area. The child was airlifted to William Beaumont Hospital, where he died. Officials say the dog will be euthanized.
