WINNIPEG — Charges will not be laid against the owners of two Alaskan malamute dogs that mauled a seven-year-old girl to death last month.

The dogs had been euthanized in the days following Gracie Ana Elizabeth Herntier's tragic death on March 16 while visiting friends of her grandparents at a home in the RM of Springfield near Winnipeg.

Gracie had known the dogs since she was an infant, her mother Jacklyn previously told QMI Agency.

Samples from the dogs are being tested for rabies.
