Five-Year-Old Mauled by Pit Bull
A five-year-old girl was mauled by a pit bull in Simi Valley, California on Tuesday, September 21The five-year-old and her mother were visiting friends of the family when the attack occurred. The girl was in the backyard with the friend's 13-year-old daughter. The pit bull mauled the girl when she "bumped into" the dog.
After hearing screaming, the girl's mother rushed into the backyard and tried to get the 35 pound pit bull off her daughter. The girl suffered severe wounds to her face and neck and lost a large amount of blood before anyone could get her to the hospital. She was revived at the hospital, but died three days later.
The girl's mother doesn't blame anyone for the attack and says it was simply "a terrible accident that should never have happened." The pit bull was being cared for and was not the family's where the attack occurred. The dog was taken to quarantine and will most likely be euthanized.
