Toddler Taken to Hospital After Dog Bites Her Face

Posted: Updated:

A two-year-old girl was taken to an area hospital Tuesday evening after being bit in the face by a dog.

Officers told KTUL that they were called to the scene around 9:45 p.m. in the area of East 53rd Street North and MLK Jr. Boulevard.

Witnesses told them that the girl had been bitten in the face by the family dog.

Initial reports state that the girl was at her grandmother's house at the time of the incident. She climbed on a couch and was attacked by the Labrador-Pit Bull mix.

Her father was nearby and transported her to the hospital. Stitches were required for the wounds she received on her cheek.

At this time it is uncertain whether Animal Control will decide if the dog will need to be put down.
