A Schumacher mother is desperate to find the dog that brutally attacked her 14-month-old daughter last Tuesday, causing permanent damage.
Kamyra Longpré was attacked outside her Fourth Ave. home near the public school, while her mother’s cousin was taking her for a walk.
Mother Katie Goudreau says Kamrya has stiches on 21 lacerations to her head and face, and is suffering shaken baby syndrome inflicted by the dog. Her ear had to be surgically reattached.
“The doctors are even amazed. She’s a miracle. She’s strong. She’s doing good. She’s healing a lot better than they even expected,” says Goudreau. “But there’s a 90% chance she has permanent nerve damage and permanent brain damage.”
The nerve damage involves Kamyra’s right eyebrow. The brain damage could affect her ability to retain what she’s taught and to perceive time.
Goudreau has a plea to the dog’s owners. “Please just come forward, that’s all I’m asking. My poor daughter is going through rabies vaccines, we don’t know if your dog has shots. Please, just somebody give my daughter the justice she deserves.”
Goudreau says the dog is quite large with thin, short fur and a black or brow patch over one eye. If you own this dog, know who does or where the dog is, you can call Timmins Police, Crime Stoppers or Animal Control.
