— Parents of a young Durham girl bitten by a pit bull are considering starting a petition to have the breed banned.

Animal control officers said Hercules bit 7-year-old Lara Bryant on the face.

Officers believe the pit bull broke free from a neighbor's leash then attacked the little girl.

Animal control officers said Hercules will be euthanized.
