Mother Puts Baby in Garbage Can for Protection from Dog

A mother and her baby went into the garage to check on their laundry and as they entered a pit bull terrier ran into the garage straight for them. “The woman placed the child into a nearby garbage can to protect it, and took the brunt of the mauling,” Sgt. Chris Mazzone said. The woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery. It was said to be unknown if she would regain full use of her arms. The dog has seemed to run away and police said the dog they are looking for has been detained in the past for biting another neighbor.
