Nov 21, 2014 Chicago Girl Attacked by Pit Bull

CHICAGO A 15-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital after she was attacked by a pit bull near 86th and Kildare in Chicago's Ashburn neighborhood.
Neighbors say three pit bulls got loose and were chasing children as they got home from school.

"They chased one of the kids in my backyard and I heard the commotion and I had to come out and scare them off with a bat," said neighbor Antoine Harris. "I chased them off. I wanted to follow them and make sure they didn't attack any other kids I came around the corner and it was too late he had pinned the girl up and bit her."

Harris says the girl suffered one puncture wound. The pit bull's owner re-captured the dogs after the attack.
