A three-month-old dog that killed his mother and toddler in a condo in northeast Toronto is dead, police said.
The dog, named Lucky, was euthanized after the family was notified of the incident.
Police said the dog was found in the condo in the 800 block of Bayview Ave.
N.W. shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 20.
The dogs owner had just returned from work.
The family of Lucky said the dogs owner came home with the dogs from a nearby park, and was unable to find them.
“He came home and it was very late, and it took him three or four hours to bring them to the condo, and then he came home, and he was gone,” said the mother, who asked not to be identified.
She added that the family is still in shock.
“Lucky had to have had his mother’s heart attack and that was the end of it,” she said.
“It was a horrible thing that happened.”
Police said a dog was shot in the neck and killed by the homeowner’s son.
He was charged with attempted murder.
“We have had a number of cases where dogs have been killed and pets have been injured and injured animals,” Insp.
Kerry Schmidt told reporters outside the Toronto Animal Services facility.
“These are terrible events, and we do not want these kinds of tragedies to happen again.”
Lucky was one of six dogs killed in Toronto in 2016.
It’s the city’s worst dog killing year since 1993.
