Maryland Pit Bull Euthanized After Attack On Girl

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Police in Cumberland say a pit bull has been euthanized after biting a 6-year-old neighbor girl in the face.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that the child suffered severe facial trauma in the incident Monday morning.

Police say she walked onto a neighbor’s porch and was attacked by the unattended dog.

Police ticketed the dog’s 34-year-old owner, Victor Safchuck, for leaving his pet unconfined and unrestrained.

Safchuck also was cited for failing to post warnings about a vicious dog.
