Ontario Baby girl attacked by pitbull

A one-year-old girl is in serious but stable condition in hospital after she was bitten by a pitbull Sunday morning.

Paramedics rushed to the scene on Draffin Court in Centrepointe where they found the young girl with “multiple severe lacerations” to her face.

She was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but was listed in stable condition.

Police said the child was bitten on the nose while the family was playing with a dog inside their home. Neighbours say the dog, named Boss, had bitten a child before.

The neighbour said the family, who has two other dogs, had taken the pit bull from a friend who was unable to train it. The dog was undergoing rehabilitation.

In Ontario, it’s illegal to own, import or breed an American pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier or any similar breed.

People who owned pit bulls before the 2005 ban were allowed to keep their animals, but had to ensure they were neutered or spayed. The dogs also had to be muzzled and leashed in public.

The law banning the animals also gives judges the right to put down the animals if they’ve been involved in an attack.
