A 5-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital Tuesday afternoon after she was bitten multiple times by the family’s dogs inside a home at the 4100 block of Brown Bridge Road.
Hall County Animal Control Director Mike Ledford said the girl was conscious and responsive when she was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville. She was set to be flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, according to Capt. Zachary Brackett, spokesman for Hall County Fire Services.
The Hall County Sheriff’s Office was also at the scene in response to a 911 emergency call around 2 p.m. Ledford said three dogs — described as PIT BULL-MIX BREED — were taken away by Animal Control.
Investigators spent more than an hour looking and photographing areas outside the home’s chain-link fence.
The case remains under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office and Animal Control, according to sheriff’s spokesman Scott Ware. He said charges, if any, are pending further investigation.
Ware said sheriff’s deputies notified the Department of Family and Children Services of the incident.
