DENVER (AP) - Authorities say a dog that bit and critically injured a 1-year-old boy in Evergreen has been euthanized.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says the 70-pound American Bulldog was “humanely euthanized at the request of the owner.” A sample from the dog will be tested to rule out the possibility of rabies.

The Denver Post reports (https://bit.ly/1g9b46A ) the boy was bitten on the head Tuesday and was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition.
