MOUNTAIN HOME AR - A MOTHER IS CHARGED WITH CHILD ENDANGERMENT AFTER HER 3-YEAR-OLD WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL TERRIER
Authorities in Baxter county say a 21-year-old woman is charged with misdemeanor child endangerment after an investigation into her 3-year-old son being attacked by a PIT BULL TERRIER. Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says Ambver Moody was released on $270 bond on Wednesday after she turned herself in.
The toddler was attacked on April 5 and needed emergency surgery at arkansas Children's Hospital for wounds to his head and neck.
Authorities said at the time that Moody had filled out a pet adoption form with the Humane Society and said there were no children in the home. The Humane Society has a policy of not allowing Pit Bulls to be adopted by homes with children.
It isn't clear whether Moody has an attorney. A hearing is set for June 21.
