Dog bites 2yo girl on face on family verandah

A two-year-old girl has suffered facial lacerations after she was bitten by a dog on the verandah of her home at Sawtell on the NSW north coast.

The girl suffered wounds close to her eye and cheek in the incident with paramedics treating her at the scene on Thursday afternoon before taking her to Coffs Harbour Health Campus for further treatment.

The attack is the latest in a spate of incidents including the death of a 12-month-old girl in a dog attack at Inverell, in northern NSW, last Saturday and the mauling of a three-year-old boy as he rode his bike in Newcastle on Tuesday.
