ALVIN, Texas (WRIC) - Last month, a Texas mother stuck her arm in a pit bull’s mouth and bit off its ear while it was attacking her 2-year-old daughter.

ABC affiliate KTRK in Houston reports that 23-year-old Chelsi Camp was pet sitting for her boyfriend’s pit bull in late March when the dog suddenly attacked Camp’s daughter, Mackenzi “Kenzi” Plass.

Camp says the pit bull is normally friendly, and likely became violent after it smelled her dog on her daughter.

According to USA Today, Camp shoved her fist into the dog’s mouth and bit its ear off while telling Kenzi to turn over onto her stomach, so that she didn’t choke on blood. The young mother says she would’ve defended her daughter the same way if a person had attacked her.

Despite having to fight off the pit bull, Camp managed to call 911. An officer who arrived on scene at the South Shore apartments on East League City Parkway shot the dog, which was still attacking Camp. The pit bull was later euthanized.

Camp suffered injuries on her hands and arms, while Kenzi has wounds on her head and face. The toddler must stay out of direct sunlight for a year while she heals.
