Pit bull attacks 7-year-old girl

Posted: Updated:
LAND O' LAKES (FOX 13) - A 7-year-old girl is recovering after a vicious pit bull attack in Land O'Lakes.

It happened outside of a home on 20505 Spanish Lane on Wednesday around 6 p.m.

The dog, named Bubba, belonged to a neighbor.

Bubba was on the owner's leash at the time of the attack.

Deputies say the Salena Posada tried to give the dog a hug and it bit her in the face, causing severe wounds.

A doctor had to put in 28 stitches in her cheek.

The owner told animal control he is considering putting the dog with a pit bull rescue group in Orlando.

The dog is now quarantined in the owner's home until a decision is made on what will be done with the dog.
