COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A 9-month-old girl is in the hospital after getting bitten by a pit bull.

The attack happened Sunday afternoon at a home east of Colorado Springs. Rescuers say the little girl was bitten on the left side of her face. She will require major reconstructive surgery to repair the damage.

A relative of the baby owned the animal. That person was issued a summons and the dog was taken into custody by the Humane Society.

    i will NEVER understand the ‘love’ some people have or pit bulls – ‘and’ by saying they are wonderful pets – they will turn on you in a heartbeat – i agree Asod… there should be a ban. BEAR – since when are we supposed to respect the pi tbull?? You got it so wrong – THEY are to respect us – end of story.

      what about the 273 Labrador Retriever bites in Colorado 2007-2008? are we going to label them vicious and ban them too? and then poodles next? and then german shepherds, golden retrievers, etc etc etc?
      when will the fear mongers in our society get it through their empty craniums that addressing the symptom is in fact “chasing one’s own tail” in nature and that going after the disease itself (irresponsible humans) is the only genuine means to public safety? we hold humans liable and accountable in gun ownership, automobile ownership, home ownership, (yes, all these things have injured or killed humans… just like dogs have)… so why not hold humans accountable for dog ownership as well?

    Are you kidding? The person who was supposed to be in charge of the dog needs to be slapped upside the head. I’ll agree that pits are more likely to be more dangerous, but the majority of the problem lies in the hands of the people who own them and don’t respect them.

    Will people never learn that Pit Bulls are very dangerous?
    Colorado needs to ban the breed.
