Dog Bites 4-Year-Old

Four year old, Zoe Bayntun, was rushed to Rockhampton Base Hospital for facial surgery after a dog attacked her in her front yard Monday night. “She only just said hello to it,” Ms Bayntun said. The dog caused lacerations to her right cheek and right lower lip. The lacerations in her lip were so bad that she needed to have surgery on it. "Just because an animal is small and has a collar doesn't mean it's not going to attack children," Mrs Bayntun said. They were thankful this is all that did happen and that Zoe is recovering well, but it is a warning for all pet owners to be aware of their dogs.
