ALTONA —

“I’m not saying they’re the worst animal in the world,” she said of pit bulls. “(But) if you have children, you shouldn’t have pit bulls in your home. Especially in a cage day-in and day-out.”

‘VERY BAD INJURIES’

Attorney Daniel P. Dagostino of the Albany-based law firm of Martin, Harding and Mazzotti will be representing the girl and her family in a civil suit against Fletcher.

“Right now, we’re concerned about her daughter’s health,” Dagostino said of Amy Downey. “She has some very, very bad injuries.”

Olivia is under the treatment of multiple physicians and has received treatment from a plastic surgeon.

Coupled with her physical injuries is considerable emotional trauma, Dagostino said.

“We have to be sensitive to her,” Dagostino said. “She’s recovering.”
