UPDATE: THE GIRL WILL REMAIN IN THE HOSPITAL FOR ANOTHER MONTH!!!
UPDATE: THE 5-YEAR-OLD 120 POUND ROTTWEILER HAD TO BE SHOT IN ORDER FOR FIRST RESPONDERS TO AID THE CHILD.
A 3-year-old girl was rushed to Maine Medical Center in Portland this morning with significant injuries to her head and extremities from an attack by a ROTTWEILER. The child was evaluated in the hospital's emergency room and was then taken to Shriners Hospital in Boston.
The child's grandmother was caring for her when she apparently went to an area near the barn where the dog was leashed to a cable. The dog that belonged to the grandmother's boyfriend, broke the choker collar it was wearing and attacked the girl. A large piece of the girl's scalp was found near the scsene of the attack. Deputies packaged the scalp in ice and rushed it to Maine Medical in hopes doctors might reattach it
