Young Girl Bitten in Face by Pitbull in San Diego

A six-year-old girl was bitten on the face, chin, and one hand and arm after a pitbull lunged at her in the backyard of a friend's house in San Diego, California over the weekend. The girl reportedly threw candy in the dog's face causing the dog to react. The dog was chained in the yard during the incident.

The dog's owner was also bitten by the pitbull while trying to help the girl.

According to animal control officials, it doesn't take much to set an animal off that is confined in the yard like the dog in this situation. A spokesman for the San Diego County Animal Services states, "A dog on a chain cannot flea which means it will react immediately and will fight. Never keep a dog on a chain, it makes a good dog bad and a bad dog worse."

The pitbull has been quarantined and its fate will be decided in the next ten days. It may be euthanized.

Although no one can condone the dog's behavior, this is also an example of just how careful adults need to be when children are around animals. Taunting animals is never a good thing, but kids will be kids.

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced dog bite attorney in your area today.
