Shortly before 11:00 a.m. on Friday morning, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office responded to Old Andersonville Pike in North Knox County after a pit bull attacked an 11-year-old girl.
The girl was playing outside on a relative’s deck when his pit bull, kept on a 15 foot chain, walked up to her and bit her multiple times. The dog then walked back into his doghouse. The girl was transported by Rural Metro to UT Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
