bullNew South Wales, Australia, Apr 19, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Though the species of the dog pit bull terrier is known for its fun loving nature and its characteristic clownish behavior, in recent past it has been involved in many violent attacks. While four days ago a pet bull terrier reportedly mauled a 7 day-old baby to death while it was sleeping next to his mother, on Monday another Bull Terrier in Australia was reportedly killed after it attacked a three year old girl. The toddler was playing in the backyard of a neighboring house when she was attacked by the dog and was seriously injured. The dog has caused multiple injuries to the girl.

The North South Wales Ambulance officers were informed at around 1:30 pm (AEST) of the incident and they rushed to the location in Pindari Crescent at the city of Taree. However, as the injury was serious, the parents of the girl took her to the nearest Manning Base Hospital without waiting for the ambulance. She was rushed in a private car and at present is receiving treatment in the hospital.

The hospital spokeswoman on Monday said that the girl who received serious injury in her abdomen, hips and legs is still in a critical condition but at present is in a stable condition. The Greater Taree City Council spokeswoman has revealed that it has been able to capture the culprit dog. The bull terrier was taken to a vet and destroyed afterward. However, the police is investigating the case. Bull terriers have also in the past been involved in many attacks which have proved to be fatal for the victims.
