Rottweilers critically injure little girls

MANSFIELD, Ohio – An Ohio sheriff’s deputy says three Rottweilers mauled their owner’s two young nieces when the girls apparently ran ahead of the dogs during a walk.

The News Journal (http://ohne.ws/VZ3GBF) reported the attack Thursday in Mansfield left a 3-year-old girl and her 22-month-old sister with critical injuries. They were flown to an Akron hospital, which said Friday it couldn’t release any information about them.

Richland County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Lewis said their aunt positioned her body over the girls to stop the dogs and was injured. She was listed in fair condition at a Mansfield hospital on Thursday.

The Richland County dog warden says relatives immediately took the dogs to be euthanized. He says the owners reported having no previous problems with the dogs.

No charges were immediately filed.
