A Utah girl, 5, was fighting for her life Monday, after being critically injured when a dog grabbed her by the neck, in its jaws, and dragged her over a 3-foot fence.

The young victim is expected to recover.

She suffered the injuries while visiting relatives, with her family, in Clearfield, Sunday.

The 3-year-old husky was euthanized, at the owner's request.

The young victim was flown by helicopter to Primary Childrens Medical Center.
