Council to decide future of dog that bit girl's nose off

THE fate of a dog that attacked a five-year-old girl in Sydney, biting off part of her nose, was yet to be decided yesterday.

The girl, who was bitten about 7.30pm on Thursday in the front yard of her Pendle Hill home, was in a stable condition at Sydney's Westmead Children's Hospital.

Holroyd City Council has seized the dog - believed to be a bull arab crossed with a great dane - and launched a joint investigation with police before deciding the fate of the animal.

A police spokesman said the dog belonged to a guest visiting the house.
