American Bulldog Mix Attacks Child
Magnolia Springs, AL - A 2-year-old boy remained hospitalized Monday after being attacked Sunday in Magnolia Springs by a 100-pound mixed breed bulldog that belonged to his family. A LifeFlight helicopter transported the boy to treat injuries to his face, neck and left hand.
The child was playing in a back yard at a Magnolia Springs residence in Baldwin County when his mother heard him scream about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. The mother, Brandy Dalrymple, scooped up the 30-pound boy and called for help. Dalrymple couldn't be reached for comment Monday.
The Sheriff's Office investigative report described the dog as a 100-pound American bulldog and pit bull mix that belonged to the family. As required by state law, the dog will be quarantined for 10 days. If the dog appears healthy after that period, the owner can reclaim the animal.
