Dog mauls four-year-old girl's face

From Mangalorean

A four-year-old New Zealand girl's face was badly bitten by a large dog Saturday so much so that she would need facial reconstructive surgery, police said.
The girl was patting the Bull Mastiff in Masterton town near Wellington, when the dog suddenly became aggressive and pinned her to the ground and bit her face, the New Zealand Press Association (NZPA) reported.
The girl was admitted to hospital with serious facial injuries that would require reconstructive surgery.
Police said the dog had been a family pet for 10 years without any problems, and was based at the home of the girl's relatives.
The dog has been "surrendered to be destroyed", and the owners are being prosecuted for "owing a dog that caused injury", police said.
Recently, a woman from the Bay of Plenty area had her scalp torn off by an American pitbull dog.
