MURRIETA, Calif. -- Authorities say a mother who already lost custody of
two children in 2008 will lose custody of her 6-month-old boy whose
*** were chewed off by two large dogs in Riverside County.
Murrieta police say the 22-year-old mother Carrie McKinney had left the
baby in a carrier on the floor in her friend's apartment last Saturday.
Sgt. Bob Landwehr says the woman left the room and soon after, a pit bull
and pit bull mix attacked the baby, tearing off the infant's diaper and
biting his ***.
The mother and friend, Doug Ritchey, heard screaming and rescued the baby,
who is hospitalized in unknown condition, police said.
Child Protective Services workers took the baby from the mother, Murrieta
police Sgt. James Ganley said.
San Diego County child protective services has obtained a court order to
take the infant away from McKinney, of Point Loma, Ganley said.
MCKinney had lost custody of two other children in 2008, the Press-
Enterprise is reporting.
It was not immediately clear why she lost custody of her other children.
Riverside County CPS will conduct an investigation, Ganley said.
No arrests have been made in the case.
The dogs are being euthanized.
