UPDATE-No charges in rottweiler mauling of five year old girl
Charges are not going to be laid in a horrific incident where three rottweilers mauled a five year old girl last Friday afternoon in Pelham.
Niagara Regional Police Staff Sgt. Randy Bleich says the investigation did not uncover any criminality.
Bleich says the dogs were used for breeding purposes.
Officials at the Welland and District Humane Society say the dogs will remain in quarantine for ten days because of health department regulations.
Executive Director of the facility John Greer says the ten day quarantine period is standard procedure and will allow the health department to determine if the dogs have any diseases like rabies.
Greer says a decision on whether to destroy the dogs will come down after the ten days and will involve the owners.
He says the dogs belonged to the family of the little girl that was mauled.
The little girl remains at Toronto's sick kids hospital in critical condition.
Police say her injuries were too many to list.
