DUNCAN, OK — A  3-year-old girl was mauled to death by a pit bull five days after her father brought the dog home to the family.

Police were called to a home Sunday afternoon after receiving a report about a young girl being attacked by a dog.

When police arrived, they found 3-year-old Rylee Marie severely injured and the dog, named Remington, in the backyard.

When Remington charged one of the officers, the dog was shot and killed.

The girl’s father, Jason Dodge, said he was visiting his brother when Marie was attacked while being watched by her grandmother.

When he got a call that Marie had been attacked by the dog, he rushed home and found his mother, who was also injured,  still trying to wrestle Marie away from Remington.

Dodge eventually got Marie away from the animal and attempted to get her to the hospital.

“I picked her up and carried her, I ran out the front door, and I threw her in the passenger seat,” he said. “I went to go to the hospital and then the ambulance came. They took her out of my truck.”

Despite attempts to save her life, Rylee Marie was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital.

Dodge said he got the dog from a friend last week and it had only been in the house for five days. He said that two days before Marie was killed, his son had played with the dog all day without any issues.

“I was very cautious about it because I don’t just bring random dogs into my home,” he said.
