Posted April 14, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— A female rottweiler that mauled a 4-year-old boy visiting his parents in Fayetteville was put to sleep Monday.

Corry McLaughlin jumped into the dog's pen Friday night to retrieve a ball. That's when the dog, who had two puppies in the pen with her, attacked.

At the request of the child's family, the female dog, her mate and their puppies were all destroyed.
