A teenage girl is currently hospitalised and left in critical condition, after she was attacked by two murderous pit bulls, which ripped off most of her scalp and one of her ears.
The 15 year old girl will never have hair again, after the attack.
The young girl identified as, Joslyn Stinchcomb, was walking in her neighbourhood of Winder, Atlanta when the dogs, who seem to have been out unleashed with their owner, began chasing her.
The dogs mauled Joselyn, with one tearing her scalp and the other digging into her neck.
A local deputy rushed to the scene after receiving a witness’ report of the mauling, and found the young girl lying face down on the curb with one dog biting her neck and the other biting her head.
When the officer emerged from his car, one of the dogs approached him and he shot it. Wounded, it ran away followed by the second dog.
Joslyn was flown by helicopter to hospital where her trachea was found to have been badly damaged. She remains in intensive care on a ventilator.
Her aunt has described the girl’s gruesome injuries in a heart-wrenching Facebook post.
“Those murderous dogs also grabbed her hair hard enough to pull her entire scalp off,” Charity Stinchcomb Montgomery said.
“She only has a small portion of skin left on her head.
“At this moment she does not have any hair left. She will never have her hair again. She is aware that her hair is missing.
“In addition, they ripped her left ear off. The doctors have reattached the ear, but they are not sure if it is viable. Only time will tell. Nor do they know if she will be able hear out of that ear.”
Joslyn also suffered lacerations to the face that caused nerve damage which may affect her ability to smile and blink in future.
Their owner Alexandria Torregrossa, 29, has been arrested for reckless conduct. Both dogs have been euthanised following the attack.
