A juvenile female is in Vanderbilt University Medical Center after being attacked by a dog in Clarksville yesterday.
The report from Clarksville Police says the incident happened between 6 and 6:25am near 1877 Pardue Ct.
The report says Taylor Anderson was playing with a friend at 310 Hilldale Lane in Clarksville when a pit bull mix belonging to the friend’s father—32-year old Justin Bryant—somehow escaped its kennel and attacked the young girl. The report says there are conflicting stories about whether the boy who was playing with the victim may have let the dog go free.
Anderson was taken to Gateway Medical Center and later transferred to Vanderbilt for her injuries. Animal Control was contacted and told Bryant to keep the dog in its pin and that they would follow up.
The dog was up to date on all of its vaccinations.
