Another dog attack on a child in the Beaufort area

The breed of dog in the latest attack.

Just two days after the much publicized pit bull attack on young Daniella Ramirez, another dog attack happened.

This time in the Burton area of Port Royal when a bull mastiff burrowed under a fence and tried to drag off a 17-month-old boy. The dogs owner, 24-year-old Katie Gottschalk, has been charged with dangerous animal attack on humans.

Multiple rehashing of the Port Royal Police Department's release abound, but I'll point you to WTOC 11 as they have a photo of the fence; read their's here.

The bite is the latest of a string in the Beaufort area.
