(WWJ) A 3-year-old girl is hospitalized after being attacked by a dog on Detroit's eastside. 

The incident happened Sunday morning when the child was in a neighbor's yard on Preston Street, near McDougall.

Police say the dog, a pit bull, was chained up, but managed to scratch and bite the girl.

Authorities say the child was not being supervised by a parent or other adult at the time of the attack.

While the situation is being investigated, the dog was transported to the Michigan Humane Society.
