A four-year-old Boyle County girl is recovering after her lip was nearly ripped off by a pit bull.
It happened Wednesday night at the girl's home.
Destiny Campbell's mother says the girl was hugging the dog, named Harley, when it suddenly attacked.
Destiny was taken to the hospital, where she had to have 20 stitches.
Doctors say her wound could take up to a year to heal.
Harley, as well as two other pit bulls the family has, were all taken to the Humane Society.
Harley was euthanized as a precaution. There's no word yet on what will happen to the other two dogs.
