Girl’s Nose Bitten Off by Dog

Posted by George Tait | Mar 20, 2018 | 0 Comments

For most of us, we think that dogs are our protectors – cute buddies – our family members. We do not think that our dog will attack us or cause us harm. For the most part, this is true. However, there have been a few reported incidents of dogs attacking their owners, neighbors, and children. Two weeks ago, a dog attacked a little girl in St. George, Utah. This attack left the girl with a substantial part of her nose missing.

The Developing Dog Bite Story

According to KUTV, on March 10, 2018 a 7-year-old girl was playing in in her friend's backyard when the neighbor's dog approached them. Dogs usually nip at people's hands, legs and faces to show affection. The little girl thought that the dog was just showing affection when the dog attacked her and bit her nose off. The little girl was rushed to the area hospital for emergency surgery. However, she was taken to a hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah for the reconstruction of her nose.

Reports say that the dog is not registered by its owner or vaccinated. The dog's owner is now facing charges related to the attack.

What Can You Do if This Happens to you?
