A nine-year-old girl on a bike near her home in the Oklahoma countryside was furiously dragged by three dogs who had escaped from a nearby animal shelter.

The unnamed child was seriously injured during the attack on Tuesday evening.

All three dogs – two foster animals and a personal pet – will be put down after coming out of a state-imposed quarantine.

Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth told the station KFOR that when delegates reacted on the stage in Wanette, they found the young victim in her mother's arms, covered with a blanket.

When the deputies lifted the blanket, they discovered bite marks and cut the girl's body up and down.

Photos taken at the time that describes the aftermath of lugging, show the legs and arms of the girl covered with blood, missing pieces of meat.

"Only through the injuries do you know the pain she has and the pain the family has," Booth said.

The child told officials that she was riding her bike and stopped to collect some stones. Suddenly the three dogs came running from Forgotten Treasures Animal Rescue and started to tear her.

The victim was taken to a hospital to receive dozens of stitches. Researchers say they could have permanent nerve damage.

The sheriff said that the owners of the shelter, which had only recently opened in Wanette, were cooperative and provided reports to delegates that all three dogs had rabies shots.

The Friday shelter published a statement on its Facebook page, showing that two of the canines involved in the attack were foster dogs, and the third was the personal pet of a volunteer.

& # 39; We at Forgotten Treasures are devastated that this has happened. None of the dogs involved have ever shown signs of aggression, and the dogs broke out of their cages when no one was home, & read the post.

All three animals - two foster dogs and a volunteer's pet - will be euthanized after completing the mandatory quarantine (not shown)

& # 39; Our prayers are with this child and her family. Although we understand the indignation that you feel, we should not blame you, & # 39; said the status update. & # 39; As far as we know, this child has done nothing to provoke this attack. The rescue could not reasonably have foreseen that the animals would escape or attack. It is a terrible tragedy. Please pray for all involved.

The sheriff intends to file charges related to the attack with the public prosecutor, who will decide whether the case will be prosecuted.
