Father stabs dog to death to save daughter

A 1 year old girl has survived after being mauled by a dog.

First responders have said it’s the worst dog attack they have ever seen.

The child’s father heard her screaming and saw their pit bull attacking her.

He went to get a gun to shoot the dog but it wasn’t loaded. He then stabbed the dog to death.

The girl’s uncle said, “She’s very good. The dogs always got along with her, so I don’t know what happened.”

The dog had no history of violence.

The girl is said to spend several more weeks in hospital.
