MAINE TOWNSHIP, Ill. – When a northwest suburban mother discovered her 18-month-old daughter’s finger had been bitten, she assumed the family pit bull was responsible.
But Cook County sheriff’s police said the culprit was actually another household pet: a piranha, Pioneer Press is reporting.
Police said one of the child’s fingertips was bitten off on the night of June 19 inside the family’s home in the Bay Colony subdivision in unincorporated Maine Township.
