DUNCAN, Okla. (KFOR) – A young Oklahoma girl was killed in a dog attack over the weekend.
Around 3 p.m. Sunday, a 3-year-old girl was attacked by a dog at her Duncan home.
When officers arrived on scene, the medium-sized bulldog mix-breed dog ran from the area.
Later, when officers found the dog, police say the dog came towards the officers and was shot and killed.
The dog was a family pet, KSWO reports. It had only been in the home for two weeks, officials said.
Sadly, the girl did not survive her injuries.
She was rushed to a local hospital where she died.
Her identity has not yet been released.
Witnesses are still being interviewed to determine what led up to the attack.
