An eight-year-old girl remains hospitalized after being attacked by a pit bull.  Crawford County Sheriff Todd Liston says it happened Tuesday afternoon when Kelcee Lowrance was getting off the school bus.  He says the dog's owner, 36-year-old Clinton Woosley, saw the dog get loose and go after the girl.

Woosley was able to get control of the dog the second time.  Lowrance was rushed to the hospital by her father, a deputy for the Sheriff's Office.  She was transported to Carle and has undergone surgery to reattach her ear and fix her damaged arm.  Woosley was arrested for reckless conduct.  The dog was destroyed and is now being tested for rabies.
