Pit bull attacks 3-year-old girl in Port Royal

Feb 17, 2011 2:26:00 PM - thestate.com
Authorities say a 3-year-old girl has been attacked by a pit bull while walking down a Port Royal street with her baby sitter.

Police say the dog had the child's head in its mouth when an officer arrived moments after the attack around 8 a.m. Thursday.

Investigators say the officer kicked the dog until it released the child, then shot the animal to death when it lunged toward the girl again.

Authorities say the girl was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police say they plan to charge the dog's owner when the person is identified.
