An Anderson County toddler went to the hospital Wednesday after being attacked by a PIT BULL.
(LEX 18/Anderson News) -- A 2-year-old child suffered a facial injury after being attacked by a family pet.
The incident happened around 9:15 a.m. at 400 North Main St in Lawrenceburg. The child was taken to UK Hospital with a laceration to the cheek.
The dog was a family pet that had never bitten anyone. The dog has been secured and the child's mother now wants the animal euthanized. The city, by law, will have to quarantine the dog for 10 days before steps are taken.
The animal, a PIT BULL/ BOXER MIX, has been vaccinated for rabies.
There is no word on the severity of the toddler's injuries.
