SURREY BC CANADA - A LANDLORD'S PIT BULL ATTACKED THE 9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER OF A TENANT




Jazira’s wound is serious. Doctors are leaving it open for now, cleaning it often to prevent infection.
Her mother said she has been worried about the dog for a while.
“I told the owner Friday, ‘Please take away this dog from my daughter because she is very scared of that dog,’” she said.
“He said, ‘Don’t worry. He’s friendly. He only wants to say hi to her’ and I said, ‘Don’t do that.'”
The owners of the pit bull chose not to speak on camera but told Global News they do not intend to put the dog down. Instead they will muzzle the animal.
Jas Rehal with the City of Surrey said they are looking into the incident.
“It’s still very early on and we have to go through our process to determine our next steps,” he said.
Jazira said she has been having nightmares about the dog and is now scared to return home.
Her family strongly believes the pit bull should be destroyed.
