Doctors reattach Ind. girl's ear after dog attack


Doctors at a northern Indiana hospital were able to reattach a 5-year-old girl's ear after it was bitten off by her grandfather's pit bull. Sarah Bailey was listed in good condition Thursday at Memorial Hospital in South Bend. Her grandfather, Troy Gladura, tells WSBT-TV in South Bend that Sarah was playing with the 80-pound dog named Spike Wednesday morning when it suddenly attacked her.
He says he stepped in to stop the attack. Police say the dog bit through the girl's ear, pulling it off her head.
Gladura says the 2-year-old dog was never aggressive before. He says he owned the dog since it was 6 months old.
Gladura says the dog was euthanized after the attack.
