Police started an investigation after the body of an infant was found with bite marks in Quebec village of Kangiqsujuaq, Canada, on June 29, local media reported Friday.

According to the reports, the body of the one-year-old unnamed child was found surrounded by several dogs near his home. Officials said Friday that the body was found on the victim’s neighbor’s land and early investigation suggested the infant was attacked by the dogs.

Police were, however, determining the circumstances leading to the death of the infant by interviewing people who had any contact with the victim on the day of the incident. Police were present at the scene Friday but were unable to comment on the circumstances of the apparent dog attack. Meanwhile, the body was sent for autopsy and the results would determine the injuries found on the child. No charges were laid so far. There was also no information about what happened to the dogs that were found near the infant’s body.

The incident comes months after a 55-year-old woman from Quebec was attacked by three dogs. Dominique Alain was out for a jog while she was attacked by the canines. The dogs continued to attack and bite her until they pulled out the flesh. The woman suffered serious injuries and underwent 12 surgeries. She was put into an induced coma for two days. Meanwhile, the dogs were euthanized shortly after the attack.

Speaking about such attacks, she said, “It should never happen, should not happen. It has to stop."
