Mar 05, 2010 Four Year Old Child Scalped by Grandmother's Pit Bull

COUNTRY CLUB HILLS — A 4-year-old south suburban Country Club Hills girl is recovering from a violent attack by a pit bull at her great-grandmother’s home.

The dog “pulled her scalp off her head,” the girl’s mother, Consuela Dawson, said Thursday.

The girl was playing when the dog suddenly attacked, police said.“We don’t know why it happened. He’s been around her before and nothing happened,” Dawson said.

According to the police report, Lewis said the dog had never before attacked anyone.
