Armed Anchorage Citizens End Animal Attack

posted on June 23, 2015

A pit bull, startled by a slamming door, bolted from an Anchorage, Alaska, trailer home, sprinted to a nearby playground and attacked a nine-year-old girl, clamping down on the top of her head.

According to a report on Anchorage’s KTUU.com last Friday, the girl’s screams alerted neighbors, who rushed to her aid. One rescuer struck the dog repeatedly, and another used pepper spray on the animal. The dog finally released the girl, but the struggle wasn’t over. The dog turned on the adults, two of whom were armed; one ended the episode by shooting the animal in the head.

KTUU reported that the child had been transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to her scalp.
