Photos on a GoFundMe page set up to help the girl’s family pay for her recovery and vet bills showed deep bite marks across both legs above the ankle.

“(The girl) is suffering unimaginable pain and permanent physiological damage,” organiser Lisa Eagleton said on the page.

Local law officers are currently gathering evidence, however no dogs have been impounded, a Cairns Regional Council spokeswoman said.
