An 11-year-old girl was mauled by two large dogs yesterday in Oktaha, according to Muskogee County Chief Deputy Mike Mahan.
The dogs, one a pit bull and the other a pit bull/lab mix, were almost immediately pulled off the girl, he said. Her parents transported her to Saint Francis Hospital in Muskogee, and then Muskogee County EMS transported her to Tulsa.
The owners of the dogs, who are friends with the girl’s family, have voluntarily submitted the dogs to a 10-day quarantine to check for rabies, after which the dogs will both be euthanized.
At this time, the cause of the attack is unknown.
