Girl Hurt In Erie County Dog Attack

An Erie County dog bite incident has left a 7 year-old girl with serious facial injuries.  Police report that a pit bull in Millcreek Township, Pennsylvania attacked and seriously injured a 7 year old girl yesterday.  Millcreek police report that the dog was on a leash and being walked by its owner in the 2900 block of Arcadia Avenue when the girl and her father approached the owner.  The dog lunged at the girl, knocked her to the ground and began biting her in the head and face.

The victim of the Pennsylvania dog bite was initially taken to EPN Urgent Care at about 8:00 last night but was later transferred to UPMC Hamot because of the nature of her dog bite injuries.

Millcreek’s animal enforcement officer is investigating the Erie County dog bite incident further.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
