Pit Bull bites Oakland child in the face

OAKLAND — A 7-year-old girl was bitten in the face by a pit bull in an Oakland neighborhood Saturday afternoon, just days after a Concord boy was mauled to death by a group of pitbulls.

The girl was taken to Children's Hospital where she was in stable condition Saturday night, said Lt. Chris Landry of the Oakland Fire Department. Oakland police and Alameda County animal services also responded at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday in the 2800 block of 82nd Avenue.

Police spoke to a neighbor who owned the dog, but it was unclear what happened to the dog, Landry said.

The incident occurred two days after a 2-year-old Concord boy was killed when he was attacked by three of his family's pit bulls in the garage of his home.

The boy's stepgrandfather was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and owning mischievous animals that result in death. Steven Hayashi, 52, was being held in Contra Costa County Jail on $120,000 bail Saturday night.

Hayashi's five pit bulls were euthanized by Contra Costa animal services after the attack.

The county coroner's office identified the boy as Jacob Bisbee.

But they are such good nanny dogs!
