Unhappy 6 wk old puppy mauls 2 mo baby? This has to be a misprint

I just saw a story on the news that a 6 wk old puppy mauled a 2 month old child to death. It showed AC carrying the puppy and it clearly was not 6 wks old unless it was some kind of giant mutant puppy. It looked more like the size of our pup when we got her which was 10 wks. Anyway what a sad story. I always wonder with stories like this if something funky was going on. Three adults (I believe mother, father, grandmother) were in the home. How could they not hear that??

That story is bizarre...a 6 week old puppy should not have that mental ability.

Even the physical ability is doubtful.

Heck a 6 wk puppy couldn't even reach a baby in a swing. Don't most even have trouble walking around without stumbling a little? It's been eons since I've seen pups that small but aren't they kind of clumsy and weak??

I wonder if something else happened to the baby and they are blaming it on the puppy.

My first thought.

Or they are exaggerating with the word "maul" . . . nip maybe, not "maul"

Here's another link with more info. There is video showing them removing the puppy. Still puzzling though.
