50 Stitches from Dog Bite

Asiatou Jallon, mother of a 3-year-old boy who was bitten in the face by an American bulldog last week, said her son is recovering but may suffer permanent damage. Witnesses say the dog was apparently tied outside an apartment building and the boy hit and teased the dog before it bit the child. "The story keeps changing, and the owners of the dog sound to me like they are blaming my son," she said. "I'm just so upset about it I don't even want to think about it any more." Jallon said she can’t help but think about it when she sees her son’s face. The boy received more than 50 stitches to his face. The dog is in quarantine at a local veterinarian’s office for observation.
