(WDAY TV) -- A 14 year old girl is recovering from a dog attack in rural New York Mills.

Authorities say the dog broke free from its chain outside a house on 535th street and attacked the girl, biting her in the head, legs and torso. The girl was treated and released from the hospital. The owner said this is the second time the dog attacked someone within 24 hours.

Officials are now checking the dog for rabies. The owner had plans to put the dog down, and won't likely face charges because the dog was tied up at the time of the attack.
