BRANDON, DOUGLAS COUNTY MN - A PIT BULL MAULED A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO WAS SLEEPING OVER WITH ANOTHER FAMILY

10-Year-Old Hospitalized after Pitbull Attack


A 10-year-old girl was transported to the St. Cloud Hospital after a PIT BULL  attacked her and bit her numerous times.
According to a report from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, Samantha VanWert of Brandon called 911 and told dispatchers she was enroute to the Douglas County Hospital with a 10-year-old girl who was just bitten by her pit bull.
Deputies responded to the hospital and VanWert’s residence to investigate.
Deputies learned that the 10-year-old was staying at VanWert’s residence and was planning a sleepover with her children. At some point, the pitbull, in an unprovoked attack, lunged at the girl and bit her numerous times while they were in the kitchen area of the house, according to the report.
VanWert was eventually able to get the dog off the girl and she reportedly secured the animal in the garage. She then proceeded to the hospital with the girl.
The 10-year-old was initially treated at Douglas County Hospital, but then later transferred to the St. Cloud Hospital, according to the sheriff’s office.
The report stated that VanWert requested that the dog be removed from the residence by the deputies and put down. As part of the investigation, the dog’s body will be tested for rabies, according to the report.
The sheriff’s office is withholding the name of the child at this time and the case remains under investigation.
