A Baby's Foot Bitten Off.

PITTSBURG, Pa., July 22.—Two ferocious bulldogs attacked the nurse and three-year old child of John Haening, of Allentown (a city suburb), yesterday afternoon while out for an airing. The nurse was badly bruised and scratched. One of the dogs seized the baby by the foot, biting it off at the ankle. The child will probably die.
