A 20-month-old baby was attacked by a dog earlier this week, sending the girl to a hospital for surgery.
It was an incident that left police officers “shook up,” an official said.
Around 9 a.m. Monday, Amaya Melendez was attacked by what state police described as a pit bull in a house near Harris Pond north of Las Vegas, officials said.
She was bitten numerous times and was taken to the hospital for surgery to remedy serious wounds, officials said.
