HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. -- A 16-month-old was taken to a trauma center after being bitten in the head by a dog.
The incident happened just before 2 p.m. Monday, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
The child was playing with the dog under the supervision of the child's mother.
The owner said the dog "did not appear to maliciously attack the child, but rather, appeared to be playing."
The family adopted the dog from Hernando County Animal Services about two months ago.
Deputies are still investigating.
