Teen recovers from pit bull bites

Posted: Updated:

A Fulton County 15-year-old spent Saturday afternoon recovering from pit bull bites.

Fulton County investigators said the dog was owned by a family friend.

The girl's family was caring for the dog at their home on Flat Shoals Road when she was attacked.

The teen was taken to Egleston for treatment.

"The dog has been secured; animal control is aware of the situation. They are working the case. We will be following up with the family next week," said Sgt. Scott McBride from the Fulton County Police Department.

The girl's injuries are not believed to be serious.
