KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — Authorities in south-central Nebraska have euthanized a family dog they say caused the death of an 1-month-old baby in the home.

The baby girl died at home last week, the Kearney Hub reported. An autopsy showed the baby died from “blunt force and cranial trauma caused by an American Bulldog that resided with the family,” according to a news release Friday from the Buffalo County Attorney’s Office.

Officials said the dog was euthanized on Wednesday and had no known aggressive behavior prior to the infant’s death. The baby’s death has been ruled as accidental.

Officials did not release name of the baby or her family.
