Mom bites off pit bull’s ear to save 2-year-old daughter

(PIX) ALVIN, Texas – A mother in Texas allowed her animal instincts to take over when a dog attacked her two-year-old daughter.

In March, the family was watching a friend’s pit bull when the dog attacked two-year-old Kenzi.

“When he smelled her, that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her,” mother Chelsi Camp said.

When the dog attacked, Camp fought back by biting off the dog’s ear. Camp shoved her fist down the dog’s throat and was able to fight off the dog.

“I only know to fight… so how else do you get somebody to stop?” Camp asked. “I mean I would do the same thing with a human being.”

Camp called 911 and an officer shot the dog. The animal was euthanized.

Several weeks later, the child has nearly made a full recovery.

“I can actually hold her again,” Camp said. “She’s a strong little girl and a fighter. She’s meant to be here.”

    When are people going to learn about having pit bulls near kids?

      When will people learn to stop blaming the animal?

      Yes, any dog could but pit bulls have a greater frequency and therefore a higher likelihood that things like this can occur. It is hard to fight nature so avoid a problem in the first place. It's akin to a cat lover raise a lion in their home with a kid. Will it snap? Who wants to take that chance?

    It's the owners fault not the dog. If he was trained to be aggressive with other dogs this is how he will react.
