HOLIDAY, Fla. (AP) -- Animal control officials in the Tampa Bay area have taken custody of a pit bull they say attacked a 10-month old baby.
Sheriff's deputies said the baby's mother was outside her home in Holiday on Friday afternoon chatting with a neighbor when they heard the dog growling inside. When they went into the house, they found the dog biting the baby on the head and shoulder.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the baby was taken to a local hospital. The child's name and condition were not released.
Pasco County Animal Control officials are holding the dog for observation.
