Dog shot after it attacks nine-year-old

A St. Bernard dog had to be shot and killed by police after it attacked a nine-year-old girl and her father in the family's yard in Prince George, B.C.

RCMP say the victims managed to get inside their home after the attack and that when police arrived they were confronted by the 170-pound dog.

They say officers had no choice but to shoot the animal so paramedics could get into the house to help the girl and her dad.

The victims suffered several deep bite wounds and were taken to hospital.

Police say the dog had been rescued by the family about six weeks earlier and had caused no problems until the attack.
