Dog bites girl, is stabbed by girl’s grandfather

MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies say a dog bit a 4-year-old girl and then the girl’s grandfather stabbed the dog twice in the neck with a pocket knife.

The incident happened shortly before noon on Monday at an outdoor seating area of a McDonald’s restaurant.

Authorities say the dog, the dog’s owners, the child and her grandfather all knew each other. The dog approached Shayna Lydick and bit her on the lip, which is when Shayna’s grandfather stabbed the dog.

Shayna was taken to the hospital for treatment. The Golden Retriever dog was treated by fire-rescue workers. Pinellas County Animal Services responded to the scene, took custody of the dog and will investigate.
