When a pit bull attacked her two-year-old daughter, maternal instinct kicked in and gave a Texas mom the strength she needed to fight back.
The family was watching a friend’s pit bull when the dog attacked two-year-old Kenzi in March 2014 according to KHOU-TV.
Kenzi’s mom, Chelsi Camp, says she thinks the dog smelled their dog on Kenzi and then it attacked.
Camp fought back by shoving her fist down the dog’s throat and biting off the dog’s ear. She called 911 and a police officer shot the dog. The animal was later euthanized.
Chelsi suffered bite marks on her arms, and has regained full use of them since the attack happened. As her wounds heal, Mackenzi must stay out of direct sunlight for a year.
