SAN DIEGO -- A 2-year-old girl was attacked by her family's pit bull at their Paradise Hills home Thursday, suffering facial injuries that left her hospitalized, authorities reported.

The dog attack occurred in the 2300 block Morningside Street about 9 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The toddler was taken to Children's Hospital, SDPD public information Officer Gary Hassen said. Her name and condition were not released.

Animal control personnel took custody of the canine and reportedly received the family's permission to euthanize the animal following a rabies exam and other tests.
