The Fradette family, who lost their infant son to a dog bite from their pet husky last month, issued a statement through Airdrie RCMP Thursday. The statement read:

The Fradette family would again like to sincerely thank all those that have been so helpful during this tragic time in our lives especially those at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, the RCMP, the City of Airdrie, the City of Calgary Animal Services, our family, friends and all those that have donated to Baby Fradette’s memorial fund at the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

As promised, we are providing an update on the future of our dog. Having had time to reflect, search for answers and determine the best course of action for our family, we have made the decision to euthanize our family pet. This was done under the supervision of a qualified veterinarian earlier today.

We are thankful to everyone that has given us privacy to grieve the loss of our son. At this time, we respectfully continue to ask for privacy, so that we can continue to grieve, heal and come to terms with our loss.

The RCMP were clear: "Once again, they will not be taking calls on this matter and respectfully request their privacy to continue their healing process."

In memory of Baby Fradette, donations can be made directly to the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
