A pit bull bit an 11-month-old girl's head in Oceanside Tuesday night, according to Town of Hempstead authorities, who later took custody of the dog and euthanized it.
It happened in the child's home on Lands Place around 8:30 p.m.
Medical responders airlifted her to the hospital. She is expected to survive.
The Town of Hempstead says it euthanized the dog Wednesday morning.
The bite came four days after another Oceanside resident says a different pit bull mauled her beloved Yorkshire terrier, Chloe.
"I am sickened and saddened by all of this going on," Kathleen Mann says. "We don't want it to happen to another dog, a baby, a child."
