Tributes To Girl Killed By Dog
Four-year-old Lexi Branson was mauled to death by her pet bulldog and the animal died shortly after from stab wounds, police have said.

The girl died on Tuesday after the attack in her lounge in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire.

The bulldog called Mulan was a stray picked up by local authorities in a park several months earlier, according to police.

Mulan had been with the family for just two months, after they picked him up from the Willow Rehoming Centre.

The history of the dog - believed to be six to eight years old - is currently part of the police investigation.
