A toddler from the Racine County Village of Caledonia was taken to Children’s Hospital with severe bite injuries from an attack by a pit bull. The 15-month old was sitting on the kitchen floor of a home when the dog, named “Mary Jane,” is believed to have charged after a cookie the child had placed in its mouth.
The dog, according to reports, inflicted numerous severe facial tears, puncture wounds, and knocked out teeth on the toddler. This same pit bull had one previous bite report, in 2009, with the woman who has now turned it over the Wisconsin Humane Society to be put down. The investigation of the latest biting incident continues, with NO charges at this point.
