Please pray for her family.
KUTV) SALT LAKE COUNTY - Jay Wallace had a hard time seeing his beautiful daughter Justice for the first time after she was mauled by a pit bull.
"It was hard, I cried," Wallace told 2News.
His daughter, 7-year-old Justice, was hospitalized after a pit bull ripped off her lip and the flesh around her mouth. Doctors in the Intensive Care Unit tried to re-attach her mouth, but unfortunately, it didn't take and will have to be removed.
"Seeing herself in the mirror will be the hard part," Wallace said. "I honestly don't know how she will react. I mean, I will make sure I'm there for her to tell her that she is beautiful."
Justice was attacked by the pit bull on June 21st at her grandparent's home in Salt Lake County. According to her dad, Justice and her two siblings were inside the house under the care of their mother's boyfriend when the attack happened.
"She screamed; I guess the boyfriend didn't think anything of it," Justice's dad said. "Went to check on her about 40 minutes later and saw what happened."
Jay says the man did not call 911 but drove Justice to the hospital himself. And apparently this isn't the first time it's happened.
The same dog bit Justice last year. Based on the seriousness of the injuries, Animal Control turned the case over to Unified Police.
"I don't think my child should have been around that dog. Let alone unsupervised," Wallace said. "She doesn't deserve to go through that. She doesn't."
