(WHAS11) – A 2-year-old can make the case that her mother is a real-life superhero.
The Texas mother took on a pit bull to save her daughter and won.
Chelsi Camp says the dog just seemed curious and sniffed her daughter but then it attacked, biting the little girl.
Camp’s animal instincts kicked in and she began fighting back.
Camp says she shoved her fist into the dog’s mouth and even bit off its ear all while telling her daughter to turn over so she didn’t choke on blood.
Camp’s daughter has bite marks up her arms but has since healed.
The dog was later euthanized.
