I just saw this on CNN.com (under video). But, supposedly, a family pit bull (8 yrs old) attacked its' owners 11-month old daughter. It went up to the couch where the parents were sitting holding the baby, and just "mauled" it (the words used in the report, not my own).

There has GOT to be more to this story!!!!

SANTA BARBARA - A baby girl will need extensive surgery after being mauled by her family’s pit bull in Santa Barbara.

Police Lt. Paul McCaffrey says the dog attacked the 11-month-old yesterday afternoon inside their apartment on San Andres Street.

The infant suffered bite wounds to her face, forehead, and scalp.

She was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital where she is listed in stable condition.

At the family’s request, the dog was taken into custody by Santa Barbara Animal Control and euthanized.

McCaffrey says the eight-year old pit bull mix had no prior history of biting people.

He says the child’s mother kept the dog at the girl’s grandmother’s house in Santa Barbara.

McCaffrey says yesterday was the first time the pit bull had been introduced to the infant
