Toddler dies after dog mauling
By Alwynne GWILT and Unnati GANDHI, Page A6
Smiths Falls, Ontario and Toronto -- A 17-month-old girl was mauled to death by a family dog over the long weekend.
Korie-Lyn EDWARDS's family had gathered at her grandmother's rural house in Montague Township, about 80 kilometres southwest of Ottawa, for the Canada Day weekend.
About 6: 30 p.m. on Sunday, the toddler wandered over to where her grandmother's 10-year-old Rottweiler-German Shepherd was chained in the backyard.
The dog attacked.
"She suffered obviously fatal injuries to the head," Ontario Provincial Police Constable Kevin DAVIDSON said yesterday.
Korie-Lyn's parents rushed her to Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, he said.
She was then immediately airlifted to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa where she succumbed to her injuries.
An autopsy was performed yesterday, but results weren't immediately available.
The dog had no history of aggressive behaviour, Constable DAVIDSON said, and it had been socialized with various family members and children.
"That's what makes this situation that much more tragic," the constable said yesterday.
The dog was taken into custody by animal control, and, at the family's request, is scheduled to be put down today.
Constable DAVIDSON said no charges are pending.
No one was at the family's duplex in Smiths Falls yesterday - about six kilometres west of the grandmother's home - where two strollers were in view near a large maple tree with wind chimes in the front yard.
The couple, both in their 20s, had moved in two months ago with their young daughter, said Dino MUSCA, their landlord. He said he often saw the mother taking walks around the neighbourhood with the girl in a stroller. The family did not own a car.
"They were keeping to themselves a lot, but I know a lot of people in town know them," he said, adding that the mother had come to his house once to use the phone.
Around the back of the home, a Dora the Explorer patio set was clearly visible, along with a large children's paddling pool with toys still floating in it.
On the front door, a sign that read "Parking For Pitbull" was above another that read, "Owners only. Violators better haul ass."

MUSGROVE, Gerald A., D.F.C.
"Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are, - One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." (Tennyson, Ulysses)
After a long and satisfying life Gerry MUSGROVE died December 28th, 2006 at Penetanguishene early in his 92nd year following a brief illness. Gerry was a warrior during time of war and a gentle, considerate man with an ever-present sense of humour during peace. Deeply loved and respected by his family, he also could claim many as his friend as he extended a thoughtful open-mindedness to all. Born in Calgary in 1915 to Edger and Annie MUSGROVE, he is survived by Norma, his wife of over 60 years, his two sons Michael and Malcolm and their families, and two of his brothers, Rae and Bob, who still reside in Western Canada. Blessed with an ever-enquiring mind, Gerry could move easily from his lifelong interests in electronics and chemistry to quoting Coleridge and Tennyson, and for much of his life seemed to enjoy a good piece of opera as much as a good round of golf. Gerry's early interests in chemistry provided occasional excitement at the family home when experiments got a little out of hand - although no structural damage ever occurred. Later he apprenticed as an electrician and had the opportunity to install the first fluorescent lighting in Calgary in a theatre around 1930. In 1940 Gerry volunteered for service in the Royal Air Force and served with distinction in 15 Squadron where he was a navigator, bomb-aimer and assistant bombing leader for a period. Gerry survived many wartime exploits including, in mid-1942, a crash-landing in England after suffering damage from enemy flak and fighter attacks during a raid on Hamburg, and the harrowing experience, another time, of being captured in the lead spotlight of enemy anti-aircraft batteries and remaining fully-illuminated and under attack for some 20 minutes of flying time. Gerry completed his tour of duty on D-Day, June 6, 1944, but he volunteered to continue flying with his crew who had not finished their tour. This was a fateful decision as two days later the crew's Lancaster, LM575, LS-H, along with 27 other planes, was shot down over enemy-held territory in France. Gerry's plane was attacked by a nightfighter from below and raked from port wingtip to starboard wingtip with cannon fire. With the plane in flames the crew was ordered to abandon the craft and Gerry parachuted to earth. For the following two months Gerry evaded capture thanks to the bravery of a number of French families who hid and fed and clothed him at extreme risk to their own lives - a kindness Gerry never forgot, and which has led to ongoing Friendship between those French families and the MUSGROVEs in succeeding generations. Eventually, Gerry ended up in a camp hidden in Fretval Forest that housed 152 Allied Aircrew and was liberated in August 1944. That October Gerry returned to Canada and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (D.F.C.) in December. Following the war Gerry studied chemical engineering at University of Toronto, married Norma and raised a family in Toronto. Most of his working life was spent as a sales representative at Gooderham and Worts Distillers and after nearly 27 years of work he retired in 1976. For over the first 20 years of retirement, half of each year was spent at Georgian Bay and half in Clearwater, Florida. In recent years, Gerry took his own quiet amusement from the fact of being retired and drawing a pension for more years than he had worked, a circumstance he felt was entirely suitable. Gerry will be missed by all who knew him well. He was a gentleman to the end, as could be expected. His family and Friends know much has been taken from them, but much still abides. So long Gerry, may you find the noble peace deserving of a warrior and a gentleman.
