- A Doberman killed a 4-year old girl in Michigan
- The girl´s family had just adopted the dog
- He attacked her by the throat when she approached him to offer a welcome treat
The adoption of a dog turned into a tragedy for the McNeal family. Barely 45 minutes after the new animal, a Doberman, was received at their home, he attacked the 4-year old daughter, Kiyana, killing her almost instantly.
The McNeals, who live in Michigan, had another Doberman as pet, which died of a cancer a few months back. They got this new one, in order to try to fill the void the other dog had left.
When Kiyana tried to give the dog a welcome treat, he directly went over to the little girl´s throat. There was nothing the anguished mother, Jacey, could do. She tried to fight the dog off, but there was no way to separate him from Kiyana. She ended up with bites on her own neck and hands.
According to a distressed neighbor who came running to the McNeal´s home after hearing the screams, the whole place was full of blood.
Kiyana’s stepmom, Lorie May, reported on the heartbreak within the family. “Kiyana was a ball of fire,” she said. “She loved to sing. She loved to dance… She brought us such joy.”
