Injuries to Lotta in an attack on Fort Myers Beach

UPDATE:A blonde, athletic woman in her 30s wearing a white bikini and swimming with three pit bulls is being sought by one family whose daughter and small dog was attacked by the dogs and severely hurt Tuesday afternoon on Fort Myers Beach. 

Stephan Meyer and Tanja Deusing are Cape Coral residents from Germany and parents of the victim and her dog. They are anxious to find the owner of the three dogs to see if the animals are current on their rabies shots.

Lotta, a Jack Russell Terrier, and  Paula-Neele Deusing, 16, the daughter, were on the beach by the Outrigger Hotel shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon when the two were attacked by three pit bulls. The family is from Geesthacht, Germany, but spends time in a Cape Coral home they purchased about 6 years ago.

No full report was available from the Lee County Sheriff's Office or Lee County Domestic Animal Services because the victims had left the beach by the time deputies and agents got there. However, an activity report from LCDAS listed at least one witness who reported three dogs all off leash and a girl was bit in the face and arm.

A dog attack on Fort Myers Beach has the parents of the victim and her dog anxious to find the owner of the three dogs involved to see if the animals are current on their rabies shots.

Lotta, a mixed breed dog, and  Paula-Nelle Deusing, 16, daughter of Stephan Meyer and Tanja Deusing of Geesthacht, Germany, were on the beach by the Outrigger Hotel shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon when the two were attacked by 3 PIT BULLS.  

"Many of the beachgoers came to our rescue and helped to fight off the dogs,"  Stephan Meyer said in a post on The News-Press Facebook site.  "The police were called and an ambulance came as well." 

Meyer said the dogs were corralled by a person whom he described as an athletic, blond woman in her 30's. He said she left the scene with her three dogs. 

"We had to bring our daughter to the emergency room for the bites on her face and hands and our dog to the vet with several wounds. It is very important that we find these dogs within 72 hours to determine if they are up to date on their rabies vaccine," he said.  He said his daughter fared better than Lotta. 

"My daughter has three little bites in the face and one deep bite in her hand, but under these circumstances she feels good. The dog is not feeling well; she got five deep bites all over her body," he said.
