Dog hidden after girl, 10, mauled

A Wanganui woman who hid her pit-bull after it mauled a girl has been jailed for six months.

Storme Karanga Campbell, 25, was sent to prison for owning a dog that attacked a child. It was the second time her dog, named Rival, had been involved in an attack.

On September 29, Tuesday-Shar Irvine, 10, was on her way home from a dairy with a friend when the pit-bull terrier cross jumped a fence and bit her leg. She suffered three deep bites in her thighs and more than 10 puncture wounds, before the dog ran home.

Judge Michael Radford said Campbell showed no concern for the girl and was only upset for her dog.

Read the rest... this is just hideous. She didn't care about the girl, just her dog. How did she think she was going to get away with this? Helloo..?! wouldn't someone ask the girl which dog bite you, where? ya know, those sorts of probing questions.
