BLACKMAN TOWNSHIP -- Three pit bulls that attacked and severely wounded a 6-year-old Jackson County girl will be put to sleep.
Undersheriff Tom Finco tells the Jackson Citizen Patriot on Wednesday that the dogs' owner gave authorities permission to euthanize the animals.
The dogs were seized Tuesday after Tyah Norris was attacked while playing with a friend. One dog knocked the girl down and the others joined the attack.
The child was in serious condition at an Ann Arbor hospital.
Finco says the dogs were not licensed, but did have their shots.
Another girl was bitten in the face Tuesday in a separate pit bull attack in nearby Parma Township. The newspaper reports she received stitches.
Finco says that dog's owner is quarantining the animal at home for 10 days.
