Dog bites Culpeper infant more than 30 times

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - An infant is recovering in the hospital after being bitten by the family dog more than 30 times.

This happened Tuesday night in Culpeper County.

The sheriff's office says the family's Jack Russell Terrier attacked the baby boy in his bassinet. The child is less than a month old.

Deputies say the baby's father then shot and killed the dog before authorities arrived.

The dog was not rabid. We're told the parents will most likely not face charges.
