The NY Daily News reports:
Chelsi Camp acted on pure instinct when she punched the dog in the mouth and bit off its ear when it attacked her little girl, Mackenzi Plass, at a friend’s house in Texas. Both mom and daughter are recovering — and the brutal beast has been put down.
League City Police Department Mackenzi Plass, seen with the first responders who whisked her to the hospital, is recovering one month after a near-fatal pitt bull attack. Her mom, Chelsi Camp, bit the ear off of the attacking dog.

Chelsi Camp saved her 2-year-old daughter from a ruthless pit bull attack by biting the dog’s ear off.
The Texas woman was dog-sitting her friend’s usually friendly pit bull last month. That’s when the dog approached her daughter, Mackenzi Plass, and things got ugly.

“The dog came up and he was just curious,” Camp told Houston’s KHOU. “When he smelled her, that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her.”
The dog began attacking the little girl, and Camp was determined to save her daughter. Camp bit the dog’s ear off and punched it in the mouth. Somehow, she managed to call 911 during the fight.
An officer responded and shot the pit bull, but didn’t kill it. The dog was later euthanized.
A month later, Camp and Mackenzi are both recovering. Camp is back at work and can now use both of her arms. Mackenzi has scars on her face but gets her stitches out this week.
