Another pit bull attack has once again left a child injured.
A 7-year-old girl in East Oakland was recently rushed to a hospital after her neighbor’s pit bull attacked her and bit her on the face.
The girl is said to be recovering from her injuries after being brought to Oakland’s Children’s Hospital.
The attack came just days after a 2-year-old boy from Concord was killed by three of his family’s pit bulls. In the said accident, the boy’s stepgrandfather was held liable as his five pit bulls were euthanized by county animal services.
I’ve read many animal attacks involving pit bulls and children and the viciousness of these attacks are really horrifying as some kids are left with scarring and trauma.
Owners must be more careful of allowing their pets near kids and strangers as accidents like this really do happen. They must never leave the child unsupervised especially if a pit bull, or any dog for that matter, is around and can attack him.
