Police have officially identified the 14-year-old boy who died after an apparent attack by the family dog.
Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that Deon Bush was found dead at his home in rural Battle Lake by police carrying out a welfare check on Thursday.
The family dog is a Long-Haired German Shepherd, which was bought and transported to the U.S. from Poland six months ago.
The three-year-old dog was put down, the sheriff's office said.
While the investigation is still active, police say they believe that Bush was attacked by the dog. He was found dead in the yard of the home, with police arriving at the scene saying the dog was "extremely aggressive."
It's not been revealed what sparked the welfare check at the home
