A 13-year-old girl is recovering in hospital after she was mauled by TWO PIT BULLS at her home last Thursday.
The incident took place shortly after 10pm, through Balls Alley off Shirley Street.
Police said the victim was at home when the dogs attacked her.
The victim’s grandmother and uncle attempted to stop the attack but both received extensive injuries to their arms and legs, The Tribune understands.
They were all rushed to hospital for treatment. At last report, the child’s injuries were listed as critical.
The other two victims were treated for their bites and released.
Animal Control was notified of the attack and the dogs were later euthanised by lethal injection.
Yesterday, Assistant Commissioner of Police Stephen Dean said police are not investigating this incident, as no complaint has been made with the police force.
The Tribune attempted to contact representatives from Animal Control but calls were not returned up to press time.
