Following complaints that a dog had bitten a youngster in the backyard of a house in the city’s Netherfield neighborhood, police and paramedics were dispatched to the scene on Tuesday.
Armed police entered the house and are thought to have cornered and killed the dog. However, the child’s death at the scene was soon confirmed, according to Thames Valley Police.

Superintendent Matt Bullivant described the incident as “a tragic incident, in which we believe that a youngster has been killed after being attacked by a dog.”
Tragic incident at Milton Keynes home:
Yesterday, just after 5 o’clock, officers and paramedics were called to a house in Broadlands, Netherfield, following complaints of a dog attack on a youngster there.
Armed police stormed the property “very quickly” and warned the neighbors to stay inside while they surrounded the animal and killed it “humanely.”
The young girl was pronounced dead at the scene after the serious injuries she got from the dog bite.
The horrified neighbors of a four-year-old girl who was fatally attacked by a dog at her Milton Keynes home have paid tribute to her.
This morning, neighbors laid flowers outside the house, while others reported Alice’s mother’s “desperate screams” when her child was killed by the animal, which neighbors claimed the family purchased about six weeks ago.
‘I heard ‘She’s dead!” She’s dead!’ a neighbor claimed. ‘They’ll stay with me forever.” It was a nightmare. I’m heartbroken. They will haunt me.’
The neighbor defined the dog as a ‘big brown dog’ that the family apparently got as a pet a few weeks back. The resident said they have ‘only seen it at the house.’
No one else was wounded, according to the police, and officers with specialized training are helping the girl’s family. Officers are still present in the area today as part of their ongoing investigation.
‘No danger to the public’
Superintendent Matt Bullivant said, “We are in the very early stages of an investigation, and it would be wrong and unhelpful to speculate as to the exact circumstances of this incident at this point.”
“However, to ensure public safety, a decision was made earlier this evening to destroy the dog involved, and this has been done humanely., he added.
“I understand how much of an impact this will have on the community and the wider public, and people can expect to see a large police presence in the area this evening and beyond while our investigation continues.”
Supt Bullivant said: “Anyone with concerns should feel free to approach our officers and ask questions, but I urge people not to speculate about the circumstances, especially on social media platforms.”
“I also understand that this case is likely to attract attention from the media. With this in mind, I would like to ask that the privacy of the family involved is respected at this very difficult time. It is impossible to imagine what they must be going through at the moment.
“We will provide further updates when we are in a position to do so.”, he stated.
Anyone with information they believe could help the police investigation is asked to call 101, quoting reference number 20230131-1546, make a report online, or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555 111.
The youngster’s death comes after an inquest heard that Natasha Johnston, 28, died from “several penetrating bites” to her neck after being mauled by eight dogs on January 12, while she was out for a walk in a Surrey beauty spot.
The owner of a dog will be sent to jail for five years or have to pay a fine if their dog injures other people.
