Dogs Destroyed After Newborn Baby's Death
Two dogs which were seized by police following the death of a girl who was just six days old have now been destroyed.
An Alaskan malamute called Nisha and an unnamed collie cross were taken away after Eliza-Mae Mullane died at her home.
The cause of the baby's death on February 18 is not yet known and a coroner is looking at the case.
Dyfed Powys Police have not given any details about her injuries.
The Alaskan malamute and the collie cross are not among the breeds banned by the Dangerous Dogs Act.
The incident happened at her home in Pontyberem, Carmarthenshire, west Wales.
A police spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that the two family dogs taken into police possession have now been destroyed.
"A file concerning the death of Eliza-Mae Mullane has now been passed to the coroner for Carmarthenshire."
The baby's parents Sharon John and Patrick Mullane described her as a "dearly loved daughter" and said they would cherish the short time they had with her.
"She brought joy into our family, and losing her like this has cast the most horrible shadow over all of us," their tribute said.
"There are no words we can use to describe what we feel at the moment, and we don't think there ever will be."
They family also thanked the community for their support in a statement issued via police.
Neighbours Brian and Patricia Punter said Ms John went inside their house and spoke to them shortly after the baby had died.
Mr Punter told Sky News: "It hadn't really sunk in at that time because it was too early."
His wife added: "She's going to have that nightmare for the rest of her life."
