Scipio girl attacked by dogs

A 6-year-old Scipio girl was severely injured after being attacked by two dogs Sunday in Jennings County.

Maj. Jerry Shepherd, spokesman for the Jennings County Sheriff's Department says that Joslin Soto was attacked by the two Rottweilers on County Road 575W when her father, Matt Cooley, opened a gate to feed dogs owned by Tim Hadley. A neighbor shot both dogs as they attacked the girl, killing one.

Joslin was flown by helicopter to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Shepherd said. The second dog was taken by animal control.
