Pit bull kills 8-year-old girl in Indonesia

A pit bull killed an 8-year-old girl by biting her neck in Indonesia’s East Java province, local media reported Monday. 

The girl was playing with a doll on the second floor of her house in the city of Malang when she accidentally dropped it downstairs onto the dog which belonged to her parents, the Detik.com news website reported.

When she tried to pick up the doll, the 4-year-old dog, which was chained, mauled her and bit her neck, the report said. The girl died on the scene.

Her grandmother tried to save her and called for help, according to the report.

“Her grandmother tried to ward off the dog but failed,” the neighbourhood chief, Titin Utaminingsih, was quoted as saying.
