Two San Francisco Bay area toddlers were mauled by family pit bulls less than 24 hours apart earlier this week.
Both victims, one from Castro Valley and one Concord, were reported recovering in Oakland Children’s Hospital, television station KTVU reported. Neither child was identified.
The hospital would not disclose any information about the victims.
The dog in the Concord attack on Monday was euthanized.
The Castro Valley incident occurred about 2 a.m. Tuesday. Alameda Sheriff’s Department Sgt. J.D. Nelson said a pit bull-German shepherd mix was in custody of animal control.
Nelson called the youngster’s injuries worse than those suffered by the 2-year-old Concord girl on Monday.
The Concord toddler was stable but faces a lengthy recovery.
