A child was attacked on Shabbos by a Pitbull and required stitches, TLS has learned. Sgt. Maureen McGilloway tells TLS the owner of the dog was walking the dog in the area of the Brook Road Sports Complex when it got loose from its owner. The dog ran into Brookhill and bit an 8 year old girl in the face.
Hatzolah was called and transported the child to an area Hospital in stable condition.
McGilloway confirmed to TLS that Police arrived and attempted to shoot and kill the loose dog, but were unsuccessful.
The dog’s owner then managed to retrieve the dog at about 10:30 PM, McGilloway said.
