On March 8, 2012, an Allegheny County judge ordered a husky to be evaluated by both an animal behaviorist and a trainer before an April 5 hearing.  On Feb. 16, 2012, the husky attacked and killed a 2 day old child that was left on the floor, unsupervised, by his mother.  The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review also reported that a hearing on charges brought against the deceased child’s mother will be held on April 16, 2012.
