    A Long Island woman stabbed her sister’s dog in a rage after the pooch bit her baby, officials said.

    Stephanie Penado, 26, of Hempstead erupted Monday in her apartment at about 9:30 a.m. after the 2-year-old Siberian Husky, named Rex, attacked her 1-year-old son, Nassau County Police said Wednesday.

    Penado grabbed a large kitchen knife and stabbed the dog several times in the face and back.

    Rex had surgery and is recuperating at the North Shore Animal League. The surgery cost up to $2,075, court records show.

    Nassau police said the baby suffered a small cut to his face and is fine.

    Penado was charged with aggravated cruelty to animal and criminal mischief. She was slated to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.

    Penado’s sister will not be charged for the dog’s alleged attack on the infant, Nassau police said.

    The baby suffered a small cut to face...................Siberian Huskys "nip". That's what they do. I would love to see a picture of the cut. I'm not defending the dog, just saying the dog could of been playing. IF that husky wanted to bite, the baby's face would be ripped off.
    AND, where was the supervision???????

    Yes, I thought there would be a lot of damage when I read the title.

    Even kids attack kids... I always expect every dog has the potential to bite a kid, that's why precautions are necessary. Even so, the reaction was way over the top and cruel, seems like she wanted to get the dog back rather than keep her kid safe...
