February 08, 2011
A Florida man is facing battery charges after he allegedly held his daughter down while she was attacked by a pit bull.
Police arrested 49-year-old Julian Saunders, of Summerfield, Florida, on Monday after his 19-year-old daughter and his ex-wife suffered multiple bites in an attack by Saunders' pit bull.
Al-licia Saunders said that she had been fighting with her father when he pinned her on the ground while his pit bull bit her arm at least five times.
Her mother was bitten twice when she attempted to stop the attack.
The dog will not be euthanized by the county, according to Marion County Animal Control officials.
