Sadly, a 7-year-old girl has lost her life after she was attacked by a pit bull as she played outside of a family member’s Louisiana home, officials say. The girl has been identified as Sadie Davila by WLBT-TV and The Advocate

The Advocate reported that family members attempted to save the young girl from the dog with a cane. Medical personnel informed officials that the young girl had

“numerous dog bites to her face and substantial damage to her skull.” 

The dog owners were charged with negligent homicide as they failed to restrict the dog while allowing him to walk around the neighborhood. The owner has been identified as Erick Lopez, 20. He was taken into custody on Saturday; however, he was later bonded out on Monday. 

Sadie was remembered by her first grade teacher, Grace Feucht, as

“fierce and spunky.” 

“She was a gift to me and made me smile and laugh many times. I sadly expect our classroom to feel considerably emptier Monday without her precious presence,”

said Feucht.
