EXCLUSIVE: West Kelowna girl attacked by bulldog | Globalnews.ca

A four-year-old West Kelowna girl was rushed to hospital by ambulance for emergency surgery Monday afternoon for a severe dog bite.

Summer Schneider returned home Tuesday morning after getting plastic surgery to re-attach her scalp, which was torn away in the attack by an American Bulldog weighing over 50 kilograms.

She was playing with a neighbourhood friend inside their house when the dog lunged without provocation.

Neighbours, including nurses, heard the screaming and rushed to try to stem the excessive bleeding and help pull the dog away.

“It was horrendous,” says Pat Price.  “There was no facial damage but it took quite a bit of her scalp off and there was a deep gash above her ear.”
