Her hand and ear were bit in the two attacks — in which she reportedly shielded infants — and some of her hair was pulled out. She also lost an ear.

The attack went on until the dog’s proprietor grabbed the animal, according to WABC-TV. The dog was believed to not be on a leash.

One child who spoke to the news station told another child’s shriekings caught her attention, “then I find the pit policeman. It was really bad.”
