A family’s pet dog mauled a newborn baby to death while his mother was in the toilet and his father was in the garden with another child, a coroner heard.

Elon Jase Ellis-Joynes was 12 days old when his family’s Chow Chow-cross is believed to have bitten him on September 13, 2020.

The child, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, was still alive when mum Abigail Ellis frantically called for an ambulance, but died at the hospital.

Doncaster Coroner’s Court heard Elon was “bleeding from his leg or his stomach”.

Police are currently investigating his death and senior coroner Nicola Mundy adjourned the inquest until a later date.

“He was bleeding from his leg or his tummy, she thought that one of the dogs had bitten Elon.
