Girl Mauled By Pit Bull

A 7-year-old Harnett County girl suffered over 200 bites and required staples to close her wounds after she was viciously attacked by a pit bull. She was taken to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill for treatment. Harnett Animal Control identified the victim as Kenlie Thomas. The girl’s stepfather, Tom Still, said the 1-year-old male dog named Chopper was apparently spooked by the sound of a battery-operated motor vehicle the girl was riding and attacked. The animal has been seized by animal control, where it will be quarantined and euthanized. No charges are expected to be filed.
