Pregnant Louisiana Woman Charged in Death of 11-Month-Old Daughter Who Died of ‘Battered Infant Syndrome’

  Pregnant Louisiana Woman Charged in Death of 11-Month-Old Daughter Who Died of ‘Battered Infant Syndrome’ Kageionna Butler, who is pregnant, was charged for her role in the death of her infant daughter, who police say died of “battered infant syndrome.” The post Pregnant Louisiana Woman Charged in Death of 11-Month-Old Daughter Who Died of ‘Battered Infant Syndrome’ first appeared on Law & Crime.Authorities in Louisiana arrested and charged a pregnant woman for her alleged role in the death of her infant daughter after police said that the 11-month-old girl had been the victim of severe abuse for weeks and ultimately died as a result of her cumulative injuries.

When the dog became aggressive with first responders, it was put down at the scene. Officers with the sheriff's department are still investigating.

Newsweek reached out to the Sevier County Sheriff's Office for comment.

It is unclear whether the family dog has a history of aggression toward the family or the baby.

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, it is common for dogs to be aggressive toward unfamiliar people, but it becomes problematic for dogs to behave aggressively toward children, especially children in the family.

"Not only is aggression toward children exceedingly difficult to treat because of safety concerns, the likelihood that a dog with this problem will ever become trustworthy is slim," the ASPCA wrote.

Aggressive behavior may be broken down into different categories, per the ASPCA, which can help pet owners understand the reasoning behind a dog's behavior.

For example, a dog may show aggression if a family member is in danger. Another dog may act aggressively if they perceive themself as "high in status," meaning that they live by a hierarchy. Other dogs may become aggressive if they are territorial and will attack and bite an intruder, regardless of whether the intruder is a friend to the dog or not.

If a dog owner decides to live with and treat an aggressive dog, the ASPCA wrote there are things to consider, including the size of the dog, bite history, what the dog's targets are and what triggers the dog's aggression.

In early October, a 16-month-old girl was attacked and killed by a dog in Akron, Ohio.

Newsweek reported that responding officers found that the child was severely injured after being attacked in the house. She was rushed to Akron Children's Hospital where she died. Investigators suspected there was a fight between two adults at the home.

At least one of the dogs became agitated during the disagreement and attacked the child. The dogs were removed from the house as the investigation continued.
