Mothers have been known to summon superhuman strength and courage when their young are in peril.
So was the case with Texas mom, Chelsi Camp, who saved her 2-year-old daughter from a pit bull attack, using nothing but her body as weaponry against the ruthless dog.
The incident occurred when Camp was dog-sitting for her friend. The usually friendly pit bull was acting fine initially, but then approached the toddler and that’s when things took a turn for the worse.
Camp explained to a reporter “The dog came up and he was just curious. When he smelled her, that’s when you saw it flip because I think he smelled my dog on her.”
With no further warning the dog attacked the little girl, which in turn launched the mom into action to save her. Camp explains she put her own arms in front of the dog’s mouth and bit off its ear. During this whole ordeal she also managed to tell Mackenzi, the daughter, to roll over so she wouldn’t choke on blood, as well as call 911.
When the officer showed up he non-fatally shot the pit bull to stop the attack. Reports say the dog was later euthanized.
This event took place in March and both mother and daughter are now recovering. Camp has full use of her arms again and little Mackenzi’s scars are mostly healed.
