Central Florida toddler attacked by pit bull

TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Animal control officials say a central Florida toddler was severely injured in a pit bull attack.

The Brevard County Animal Services & Enforcement reports that the 18-month-old girl was at a Titusville home Monday evening when the dog bit her on the face. Florida Today (http://bit.ly/qp1JSG) reports the girl suffered at least one puncture wound and several cuts from a pit bull’s teeth.

Family members told officials the attack seemed unprovoked. They’d had the dog for eight years.

The child was taken to an Orlando hospital in stable condition.

The owners of the dog turned it over to animal control officers for quarantine. Officials say the dog will be euthanized.
