Girl Attacked by Four Bulldogs in Creston

By Beacon Staff

Flathead County officials say a 7-year-old girl suffered extensive injuries over the weekend when she was attacked by four American Bulldogs near Kalispell.

Sheriff Chuck Curry says deputies, animal control officers and an ambulance were called to a residence near Creston shortly before noon on Saturday.

Curry says the girl and her father were visiting from out of town and that the girl and a woman were playing outside the residence when the girl was attacked and dragged by the dogs.

Curry says the dogs were taken to the Flathead County animal shelter.

Undersheriff Jordan White says the sheriff’s office and the county attorney’s office will determine if charges will be filed.
