Girl survives attack by dogs

Email News Alerts

A rolled up newspaper most likely saved the life of a 14-year-old White Earth girl and her cousin late Sunday afternoon.

The girl, Catlin Davis, had walked across the road from her aunt's house on County Road 143, to wait for her cousin Gina Roy to pick her up when she was attacked by a pack of four dogs, which appeared to be pit bulls.


The dogs then dragged the girl down into the ditch next to the roadway.
