She knew her brother's 2 dogs were in the yard, but thought they were tied up, according toWGHP.  Newborn Susie Kirby was rushed to the hospital where she died from her injuries.
THE DOG RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ATTACK AND ANOTHER DOG were taken from the property and will be put down.
"We believe from all indications that it was anunfortunate accident, but we are looking into any type of child endangerment [or] criminal activity", Macias said.
While yet to rule out charges, police have since described the three day old Fresno baby girl's death an 'unfortunate accident'.
This is not the first time a baby has been killed by dogs in California this year.
In April, another newborn was killed by a dog, which was reportedly startled by a cough.

One of the dogs was known to be aggressive, the woman told police. "A dog that has bitten once can bite again, and a dog that has never bitten could still bite".
The two male dogs are owned by the woman's brother, who turned them over to the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

A 3-day-old baby girl was killed by family dogs in Fresno early Monday, police say.
The girl’s mother thought the dogs were chained up in the back yard when the attack occurred, police said.
The baby was attacked at a home on the 3700 block of North Glenn Avenue about 12:30 a.m. Monday and died a short time later at Community Regional Medical Center, Sgt. Dan Macias said.
The 33-year old mother, who was not identified, said she left the child on the couch and “walked away for a few seconds,” Macias said.
“She left the door open because it was hot and she thought the dogs were tied up,” he said.
The two male dogs, which are believed to be SHAR-PEI/PIT BULL MIXES, are owned by the woman’s brother, who wasn’t identified. He surrendered the dogs to the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
One of the two dogs is aggressive, the woman told police. Macias said police are continuing to investigate and charges haven’t been ruled out.
The child, the woman and her 30-year old brother were the only ones in the house, Macias said.
“At this point, we believe it was an unfortunate accident,” Macias said.
Walter Salvari, SPCA spokesman, said the dogs will be euthanized.
