LANCASTER: Children Attacked by Pit Bull Dog Lafayette Street
LANCASTER, California (June 20, 2017) — A stray pit bull dog attacked a 2-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy as their mother loaded them into their van near a vacant lot in the 700 block of Lafayette Street, according to a report by WGAL News.
The dog jumped inside the van as the children’s mother was securing them in their car seats. Several bystanders attempted to stop the aggressive dog, but it kept struggling free and went back after the two children. The dog was not going after the adults, but was targeting the small children.
The vicious dog caused serious facial injuries to the two young children who were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The family believes the dog with no collar had been fenced in at a nearby residence, but got out somehow. The animal has been taken to quarantine.
