(Newser) – When a pit bull began attacking her 2-year-old daughter, Chelsi Camp fought fire with fire. The Texas woman bit the dog's ear off in a desperate attempt to save her kid—and it worked, reports KHOU-TV. She also shoved her fist in the dog's mouth and somehow managed to call 911 in the frenzy. An arriving officer shot the dog, which was later euthanized. Camp, who was dog-sitting the normally friendly animal for a friend, is recuperating from lacerations on her arms but can once again hold daughter Kenzi, who still has scars on her face from the attack. As the Daily News puts it, "Mike Tyson has got nothing on this heroic mom."
