LEAGUE CITY, Texas (AP) - A 2-year-old girl has been seriously hurt when she was attacked by a pit bull at a suburban Houston apartment.

The child’s mother also has been injured trying to protect her daughter.

Police summoned to a League City apartment shot and killed the dog Monday morning when it continued to be aggressive.

Authorities say the animal belonged to the woman’s boyfriend and she was pet-sitting the dog. The girl was taken by helicopter to a Houston hospital for treatment of severe face and head injuries. Her mother has wounds to her hands and arms.
