18-month-old attacked by pit bull in South Toledo

An 18-month-old girl was attacked by a pit bull yesterday afternoon at Western Avenue and Boody Street in South Toledo, authorities said.

Opal Gibson was taken to Toledo Hospital, where she was in fair condition last night, a hospital spokesman said.

Opal was walking with her parents on Western about 3:30 p.m. when the dog grabbed the girl from underneath a fence and dragged her partially underneath.

She suffered multiple puncture wounds to her right leg, said Karla Hamlin, acting Lucas County dog warden.

The dog, which was not properly confined, is being held at the county dog pound.
