Mum of tot killed by rottweiler warns other parents ‘all dogs are dangerous’

The mother of a two-year-old girl savaged to death by two rottweilers has warned that "dogs are dangerous", "unpredictable" and can "suddenly turn" on people.

Guard dog Bruno, a rottweiler, snatched five-month-old Cadey-Lee Deacon from her cot after a door was accidentally left open in September 2006.

In an inquest statement, mum Amy Burchell said she found her covered in blood on the roof terrace next to the dog. Bruno and a second rottweiler were destroyed.

"There was a bite mark on her head," she said. A post mortem found the child also had bites to her chest and abdomen.

Bruno, later destroyed, was normally kept on the roof of the pub Amy and Cadey-Lee's stepdad Lee Burchell ran in New Parks, near Leicester.

Now, after a spate of high profile attacks by dogs, Amy and husband Lee, spoke to The Sun and said: “All dogs are dangerous, they are unpredictable and can suddenly turn around, like humans."

The mum-of-six and her partner vowed never to own dogs again.

The news comes after the shocking death of 17-month-old Bella-Rae Birch from St Helen's, Merseyside.

Bella-Rae fell victim to a devastating attack by her family's new pet dog inside her home on March 21.
