DETROIT (WWJ) – A 10-year-old is listed in critical condition after being attacked by a Pit Bull on the east-side of Detroit Saturday afternoon.
On Sunday surgeons were able to reattach the girl’s arm and save her foot — this after sustaining massive injuries to her body in the attack. While doctors said they are optimistic — the girl remains in critical condition.
The dog was reportedly locked upstairs in a home on Beaconsfield and Yorkshire when it got loose and went outside.
The girl’s 55-year-old aunt intervened in an attempt to stop the attack, but the dog then attacked the aunt, wounding her leg — she was treated and released from an area hospital.
The dog allegedly attacked a DTE worker last year.
No information yet on if the dog will be put down.
It’s unknown what, if any, charges will be brought against the dog’s owner.
