Dog euthanized after biting girl at beach

An 80-pound pit bull was euthanized by its owner after it bit a 7-year-old girl at Brooks Street Beach at 12:42 p.m. May 20, Lt. Jason Kravetz said.

The girl was with her family and friends, all from Whittier. One of them, a 21-year-old, had his pit bull on a leash. The young girl started petting the dog, which allegedly began biting her, leaving lacerations on her face and left arm, Kravetz said. The girl was hospitalized at Mission Children's Hospital for the injuries.

The owner of the dog requested that the dog be euthanized, saying it had bitten another person. The dog was taken to a local veterinarian for the procedure, Kravetz said.
