UPDATE: Pit Bull attacks group of kids in north Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash-- A group of kids and parents in north central Spokane were in the middle of an Easter egg hunt Sunday afternoon when a couple of pit bulls from down the street got out from behind their fence and charged at them. One of the pit bulls grabbed on to one of the 6-year-old girls, biting her twice on the arm. The parents were able to run at the dogs and scare them back to their yard. The injured girl only suffered some minor bite marks. Parents don't have any idea why the dogs chose to attack the group.

"They came two houses down to get them," said Lindsay Baker, mother of girl bit by dog. "Obviously it wasn't because we were just too close to their house"

According to Baker, this isn't the first time this neighborhood has had an issue with these dogs.

"I believe they've been deemed dangerous before," said Baker. "The litter of puppies that came from those dogs have been given to people around the neighborhood, has actually been put to sleep for being vicious and attacked the neighbor lady this last year, broke her wrist so it's been kind of an ongoing thing with the family of dogs"

Baker called Spokanimal to notify them of the attack. They told her since the dogs were back in the yard they couldn't do anything today, but would call her back tomorrow to see what she would like to happen to the dogs.

Update:

After the story aired on KHQ Local News at 6 the pit bull's owners, Bill and Sharon Grove, contacted KHQ and said they are regretfully and deeply sorry this happened, and that the dogs will be put down.
