It is sad to know that more and more people are being hurt by animals that are supposedly there to protect us from dangers and provide us with a sense of security.
In fact, an 18-month-old girl, from Farmersville, sustained serious injuries after she was reportedly attacked by a dog, which is owned by her baby sitter.
According to reports, both the toddler and her baby sitter were near a door, which leads to the backyard of a house along 500 block of North Ventura Street in Fresno, when the incident occurred.
The little girl was suddenly grabbed by the dog. She was then dragged right into the backyard.
Reports said the attack ended when a 17-year-old boy restrained the dog after he heard the girl scream.
The toddler was rushed to Community Regional Medical Center to receive treatment for lacerations to her face and head, scratches all over her body, and puncture wounds. She is now under a critical condition.
Meanwhile, the baby sitter sustained wounds on her arm. She may also have a broken finger.
The dog, which is a mix between a boxer and shepherd, was placed under custody. A hearing was set to determine whether the animal will be released or euthanized.
