OCEANSIDE, California – A pit bull terrier attacked and bit a 6-year-old girl Tuesday night left alone by her father in a family friend’s apartment in the 100 block of Canyon Drive, according to news reports.
The girl suffered serious injuries in the dog attack and her father could face criminal charges for leaving the girl and her younger sister alone in a home with the dog and a German Shepherd that was also in the home. The father and his friends went out to the car to bring in groceries and returned to find the pit bull biting his daughter on her face and head.
Paramedics transported the little girl to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego where she is being treated for severe bite wounds due to the dog attack. The younger sibling was not attacked by the dogs.
