Two pit bulls attack young girl

By Joe Hegarty, WGME

A girl is recovering, after police say she was attacked by two pit bulls on Wednesday.

Witnesses say the 11-year-old from Massachusetts, was attacked when the dogs broke free from another child who was walking them in Kennedy Park.

One of the dogs took a chunk out of her leg, while the other scratched her arm.

She was rushed to the hospital where she received 10 stitches and several shots.

Police now have the dogs in custody until the investigation is complete.

Officials do say the number of pit bull attacks is actually down in the city, compared to previous years.
