CALEDONIA - The Caledonia Police Department says that a 15-month-old child has been hospitalized with severe facial tears, puncture wounds and missing teeth after being attacked by a pit bull.

The attack happened Wednesday night at about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday at a home on the 3400 block of Ivy Lane.

According to police, the child was sitting on the floor when the pit bull, known as Mary Jane, attacked.

The dog reportedly bit the child so she could get a cookie from the child's mouth.

A humane society in Racine has seized the dog. Her owner says she wants the dog euthanized.

No one was initially arrested, but a criminal investigation is ongoing.
