A little girl was taken to the hospital Tuesday night after being attacked by a dog.

An ambulance was called to a home on Des Moines Street just before 5 p.m.

Neighbors say the dog bit the child on the face or neck, while the mother was trying to get rid of the dog because it had been growling at the child.

The dog was seized by the Animal Rescue League.

No one from the police department was available for comment and the child’s condition is unknown.
