Pit bull attack spurs call for quick action

From IndyStar.com

A mother is asking Hancock County officials to take action against the owners of a pit bull that attacked her 7-year-old daughter while she was riding her bicycle on the sidewalk near her home Friday.
Sarah Brown said the 7-month-old pit bull that bit her daughter, Rachel, had chased her at least six times before, but the dog's owners refused to keep it leashed when it was outside.
 The dog bit Rachel's buttocks. She was treated at a hospital and released.
The dog was confiscated by animal-control officers and will be held for 10 days, as workers observe its temperament.
The dog was not vaccinated and also will be tested for rabies.
