ALVIN, TX – A two-year-old can make the case that her mom is a real superhero. Chelsi Camp took on a pit bull to save her daughter, and won.
It was the end of March and Chelsi was dog-sitting a friend’s Pit Bull who was friendly until he met her daughter Mackenzi.
“The dog came up and he was just curious and when he smelled her that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her.” said mother Chelsi Camp.
The dog attacked the little girl, so Chelsi was forced to fight. Shoving her fist into the dog’s mouth and even biting off its ear. All while telling her daughter to turn over so she didn’t choke on blood.
“I only know to fight so how else do you get somebody to stop I mean I would do the same thing with a human being.” said Chelsi Camp.
Chelsi has bite marks up her arms. It took a while but she now has full use of them again.
“I can actually hold her again. I couldn’t hold her for the first week that was the hardest part” said Chelsi Camp.
So mom’s back to work, and with a little extra protection from the sun, Mackenzi is back to playing and having fun. Mackenzi has to stay out of direct sunlight for a year. She gets her sutures out this week.
The dog was later euthanized.
