CHICKASAW, Ala. (WKRG) — A 4-year-old girl is recovering after she was allegedly attacked by three pit bulls in Chickasaw. 

According to Daniel Newton, the girl’s father, the attack happened in his neighbor’s yard on Saturday, February 2, near Geronimo Street and 9th Avenue. Newton says his daughter, Maya, was in his own yard playing and believes the dogs pulled her over a short fence. He says that is the only way to explain the gashes and cuts she has on her head. Newton says it was a mother pit bull and two of her puppies that look like full sized dogs.  Maya is being treated at USA Children’s and Women’s and has received stitches on her head. 

Chickasaw Police confirm that a report has been filed and they are investigating. At this time it seems no one has been charged in the case.
