A family dog has been seized from a house in Wales following the “sudden death” of a baby.
Dyfed Powys Police were called to the village of Pontyberem in Carmarthenshire, Wales, at 8.30am today.
“A police investigation is underway following the sudden death of an infant at a property in Pontyberem,” a force spokeswoman said.
“Inquiries are still at an early stage with the call being received shortly before 8.30am. As part of inquiries, the family dog has been seized. Inquiries are ongoing.
“Further updates will be made available as appropriate.”
The breed and type of dog seized is not being released at this stage, she added.
The news follows the Febuary 10 death of 11-month-old Ava Jayne Marie Corless in Blackburn, England after she was attacked by what police described as an American pitbull-type dog.
