A three-year-old girl died on Wednesday night after being attacked by the family dog.


The girl was attacked after entering the dog's enclosure in the garden of the family home in Fiano Romano, an area on the outskirts of the capital, reported.

She was rushed to Santa Andrea hospital where she died of a large wound to the neck and multiple injuries to the arms and head.

Police said the nine-year-old German Shepherd seemed to have been well looked after.

The dog has been taken into care by the local healthcare authority, Asl di Bracciano.
