Girl flown to hospital after pit bull attack
9-year-old was home alone with newly adopted dog
Hall County Animal Control officers and Gainesville Police gather information Thursday afternoon at McEver Vinyards Apartments after a dog attacked a 9-year-old girl.
Adrinna Adkins, 9, was shielding her pet cat when a pit bull attacked her inside her home at McEver Vineyards Apartments. The dog, which belonged to a family friend, was going after the cat. Instead, it bit Adkins, a third-grader at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy, leaving bite marks from her elbows to above her shoulders.
