MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) ― Police say a pit bull bought on Craigslist attacked two children in New Hampshire within 24 hours of its purchase.
Police say the 80-pound dog attacked a 12-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy on Saturday in Manchester. The girl suffered bites to her arms while the boy was bitten on the face and needed 10 stitches.
The New Hampshire Union Leader says the victims are relatives of the owners, Shawn and Nancy Innie. They say the dog attacked without provocation. The dog was taken to a local animal shelter.
