A dog that bit a 5-year-old Florida girl's face Saturday was attacked by the girl’s pet pit bull and euthanized, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control Capt. Dave Walesky said.
The girl, playing on a sidewalk, tried to pet the dog, a Labrador mix, before it bit her, Walesky said. The girl’s pit bull attacked the offending dog, which suffered severe injuries, Walesky said.
The girl was treated at Delray Beach Medical Center and released, Walesky said.
The Labrador mix was euthanized by Animal Care and Control and will be tested for rabies.
