CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - An attack by a dog on a 6-year-old girl Sunday is being investigated by Pennsylvania State Police and state Dog Law Enforcement Officer Georgia Martin.
"When I talked to the mother this morning, the little girl was home," Martin said Monday afternoon.
The girl was taken Sunday to Chambersburg Hospital for treatment of bite wounds to her head and face, police said.
"The dog is on quarantine at this time at the Humane Society," Martin said.
Although the dog's rabies vaccinations are up to date, Martin said state law requires the animal be quarantined to make sure it does not have the disease.
Police said the attack occurred at a home on Surrey Drive in Hamilton Township before noon. The girl lives nearby and was visiting the house and playing with other children inside when she was attacked by the pet dog.
