The child, who has not been identified, suffered bite marks and cuts to the majority of her body on Tuesday night.

The girl had stopped to collect some rocks while cycling home when the terrifying attack happened, KFOR reported.
She saw the three canines charging towards her from Forgotten Treasures Animal Rescue in Wanette, Oklahoma.
They proceeded to tear off chunks of flesh and left her with injuries to her legs, arms and other parts of her body.

She was rushed to hospital, where she needed dozens of stitches and may have sustained lasting nerve damage.
Graphic photos taken by Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office revealed the extent of her wounds.
Mike Booth from the department said: "Just from the injuries, you know the pain that she’s in and the pain that the family’s in.
"Even as long as you’ve been doing what I’ve been doing, it’s pretty tough to see and understand and know what that child went through.”
The sheriff confirmed that all three animals, two foster dogs and one personal pet, had received rabies shots.

Forgotten Treasures later confirmed that they will be "humanely euthanised" after being quarantined.
In a statement the shelter stated that they were "devastated" by what had happened.
They wrote: “None of the dogs involved have ever shown signs of aggression, and the dogs broke out of their pen when no one was home.
“We are fully cooperating with authorities in this matter.”
They added: "While we understand the outrage you are feeling, please refrain from placing blame.
"To our knowledge, this child did nothing to provoke this attack.
"The rescue could not have reasonably foreseen the animals would escape or attack.

"It is a horrific tragedy. Please pray for all involved."
