Mom Bites Off Dog’s Ear To Save Daughter’s Life
Like most parents, Chelsi Camp will do anything in her power for her kids and that recently meant biting off a dog’s ear.

That’s what Camp did in March, when a neighbor’s pit bull attacked her two-year-old daughter, Mackenzi Plass, near their home in Alvin, Texas.

“The dog came up and he was just curious. When he smelled her, that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her,” Camp told KHOU-TV.

When the dog attacked little Mackenzi, Camp reacted by shoving her fist into the dog’s mouth. Then she bit off its ear while turning her daughter over to make sure the child didn’t choke on blood.

Amazingly, Camp managed to call 911 during the fight. When the officer arrived, he shot the pit bull, but didn’t kill it.

The animal was later euthanized, the New York Daily News reports.

Thanks to her mother, Mackenzi survived the attack. She has scars on her face from the dog bites.

Sutures are being removed this week, but she has to stay out of the sun for a year, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

For Camp, the hardest part of the ordeal occurred after the attack. As a result of injuries sustained during the dog fight, she temporarily lost the use of her arms.

“I can actually hold [Mackenzi] again. I couldn’t hold her for the first week that was the hardest part,” she said, according to UPI.com.

PETA Isn’t Thrilled That the New York Jets Signed Michael Vick

PETA Isn't Thrilled That the New York Jets Signed Michael VickThe animal rights activist group PETA took to Twitter to express its displeasure with the New York Jets for the signing of quarterback Michael Vick. The new Jets back-up infamously served almost two years in prison after he pleaded guilty to running an illegal interstate dog-fighting ring.  He has since found a mentor in the form of highly respected former NFL coach Tony Dungy and a new team in Philadelphia, where Vick has spent the past five seasons. At least Michael Vick can't drown, electrocute, hang, or shoot a football the way he terrorized "man’s best friend." #smh #Jets — PETA (@peta) March 22, 2014
