A young girl in Yankton was treated for injuries after being attacked by what authorities said was a pit bull.

The 12-year old girl was treated for bites and cuts to her arms and legs after being attacked in a mobile home park east of Yankton while walking to school yesterday.

The dog was on a chain but broke loose.

The dog will remain in quarantine for 10 days, then the owner of the dog will either take it to the Humane Society or have it euthanized.

No charges are pending, but this isn’t the first time there has been an incident with the dog.  In 2012, the same dog bit a different girl in a city park.
