ROGERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A north Alabama man is in jail after authorities say his pig attacked a 3-year-old.

Al.com reports that 21-year-old Thomas D. Brown faces charges of reckless endangerment and permitting livestock to run at large.

Authorities have said the 350-pound pig grabbed Bella White by the arm while she was playing outside her family’s home on Monday.

The girl’s mother told local media that her daughter received stitches and still needs to see a specialist to determine if she needs surgery or has nerve damage.

Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Investigator Brad Bolton says the girl’s family obtained police reports and asked a magistrate to issue the warrants.

Brown is being held at the Lauderdale County Jail with a $6,000 bail. Online jail records do not indicate if he has an attorney.
