8 Year Old Attacked by Bulldog in McCleary

January 22, 2013

An eight year old girl is in the hospital following a dog attack over the weekend on her birthday.

Grays Harbor’s Deputies learned on Monday about the attack.

On Saturday an 8 year old girl and a friend were walking to another home on Heslep Lane in McCleary. They were meeting with another friend to bring her to the girl’s  birthday party.

When they arrived at the neighbor’s home, a 2 year old American bulldog was able to get out of a gate and attack the girl.

The 8 year old suffered a serious bite to the head as well as to her legs. She was transported to Mark Reed Hospital before being transferred to Providence St. Peter’s Hospital in Olympia.

The dog had a previous report for being “potentially dangerous”.

Animal control officers are investigating the bulldog before officially declaring it dangerous.
