NORTH PORT, Fla. -- The North Port Police Department will not file charges in a dog attack that happened over the weekend that ended with a 13-month old transported to All Children's Hospital.

Officers said a 13-month old and his father were playing in their home on Trojan Street when the family's pit bull started to growl, bit the toddler in the head and dragged him along the floor.

The boy is in stable but critical condition at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg.  

The dog was turned over the Sarasota County Animal Control officers.
