SARDIS, SALINE COUNTY AR - A PIT BULL THAT ATTACKED A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL IN THE FACE WAS DETERMINED BY CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER TO NOT BE VICIOUS - TAKE A LOOK AT THE VIDEO !!!




A dog bite left a 10-year-old girl with stitches across her face Friday (3/25). The dog remains in quarantine but a number of people in the Sardis neighborhood of Saline County say they want more done about it.
 
According to the Saline County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) the girl was bitten by a dog and treated for her injuries at Children's Hospital.
 
We're told four dogs lived with the family at the time on Kristen Circle where it happened. SCSO Deputies did write an incident report. 
 
It would not reveal specifics on the juvenile's case but did confirm the other three dogs were put down afterward at the owners request.
 
The dog responsible however, won't be. We're told it will return home after a mandatory 10 day quarantine.
 
According to SCSO, it's Code Enforcement Officer determined the dog was not vicious, despite the bite.
 
Saline County does not have a ban on specific dogs but does have a vicious dog ordinance. If a Code Enforcement Officer determined a dog was vicious, the officer could write a citation for the owner and a Judge would ultimately make the decision on whether the dog is vicious.
 
We're told the three dogs euthanized are responsible for other incidents in the neighborhood including the deaths of neighboring dogs.
 
Several neighbors reiterated the same concerns and/or have encountered issues with the dogs from the property in question.
