A dog handler at a kennel in Orange County was hospitalized and in danger of losing an arm after she was attacked by a mixed bull mastiff.

Police say the 13-month-old dog mauled the woman Friday while she was giving it some exercise at The Pet Camp kennel in Wallkill.

Wallkill police tell Newsday (http://bit.ly/P1Wv9S ) that the woman was badly bitten on her head and arms and needed surgery.

Police Lt. Antonino Spano says authorities were seeking an order to have the dog killed.

Camp owner Chuck Elmes tells the paper the worker's injuries were not life-threatening.
