Five Year Old Attacked By Dog In Ventura

Posted on Friday, July 19, 2013 2:39pm

A five year old girl is recovering from puncture wounds, and bruises she received after she was attacked by a dog in Ventura.

Police say the little girl and a parent were walking into a coffee shop on the 600 block of East Main Street just before 7:30 last night, when a dog on a leash lunged at the child, and grabbed her by the stomach.  Investigators say the Rottweiler violently shook the child, and didn’t release the little girl until the dog’s owner pried its mouth open.

Animal Control officers took the dog, and put it into quarantine.
