The homeowner where the incident happened spoke briefly to FOX5 and said it was his 
granddaughter who was killed and that he was heartbroken and in shock. 

He said the family was at home and they don't know what happened. He said his granddaughter has always been around large dogs, including that one that bit her. 
“I mean it's a sad thing to know that your kid got mauled by an animal,” neighbor Michael Seed said. “It hurts not only that it took a life but the owners of that animal - it's kind of like their child too so I hate to see that something like that happens.”
“It's never really been aggressive,” Seed said about the Rottweiler. “I've never heard it bark. It's been there numerous times.”
The investigation was on-going; check back for details.

I highly doubt this child died by a dog bite, more like brutally ripped apart.

Oh well, we can't fix stupid. Aggressive dog breeds are not necessary in today's society. Aggressive dog advocates do not care about human safety, they only care about creating laws that protect their right to harbor "get away with murder dogs".

The comment that the dog hadn't been aggressive before scares me. There is no excuse for this dog killing a chid. However, I cannot help but wonder how many times this dog showed signs of stress around this child. Closed mouth. Licking its chops. Glaring.
No one saw this. Rottweilers as a breed are more likely to show stress than a pitbull. Of course, I realize there are a few dogs in many breeds that don't show it. I've seen so many videos posted on Facebook where the dogs look like they'll bite within seconds while the humans present are oblivious to the dog's body language.
