Sharon Tomlinson has recounted the horror of March 1, 2014 when her four-year-old daughter was mauled by a pit bull in Mandeville, Manchester. 

"I ran over to the dog and grabbed him, not knowing that once the dogs bite down, their jaws lock. The owner picked up a truck rim and dropped it on his head, to no avail," she said.

"I grabbed the dog around his throat shouting 'Let her go!' Nothing. In order to save her, I had to rip her leg from his mouth and the blood was spewing like a broken pipe," Tomlinson recounts.
