MIAMI TWP. — An 8-year-old girl suffered multiple head injuries when a dog attacked her last weekend in Miami Twp., police records show.
A Miami Twp. police officer could “see several bite marks” on Savannah Coleman’s head after crews arrived at the Oakwood Village mobile home park off of Wood Road on Saturday night, the report indicates.
A witness said the dog was seen “with it(s) mouth on the head actively biting” the girl, police records show. The Animal Resource Center said the dog is classified as a pit bull.
The victim was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital, where she was listed in fair condition. The dog will be quarantined before it will be euthanized, according to the Animal Resource Center.
