The Sûreté du Québec police force says no charges will be laid in connection with the death of a four-year old girl in Puvirnituq, Que. 

Police say Sheena Levina Jenny Uqaituk was attacked on Saturday after she approached a neighbour's dog, which was tied up at the time.

The dog that attacked the girl and another one — tied up at the same house — were both put down.

Police said they have almost completed their investigation.

They are asking everyone to warn children to be careful around dogs that are tied up or running loose.
