6-year-old mauled by dogs
WESTWOOD, Ohio (Angela Ingram) -- A child was mauled by two pit bulls and suffered major facial injuries Wednesday evening.
It happened in the 2900 block of Aquadale Lane in Westwood. The 6-year-old girl was playing with her brother when two dogs attacked her. She was taken to Children's Hospital and into surgery. Police report the child is in critical but stable condition. She is expected to survive.
Neighbors say the attack was terrifying to watch. Witnesses say the dogs grabbed the child and flung her around like a rag doll. They say the harder neighbors and the mother tried to get the dogs off the girl the more agressive the dogs became.
Police shot and killed both dogs involved in the attack. There was a third dog that was taken from the same owners although it was not involved in the attack on the girl.
