Social media campaign raises support for wounded Staten Island pit bull

A Staten Island pit bull shot and wounded by police trying to break up a dog fight has thousands of online friends.

Dog activists have taken to social media to raise support for Baby Girl and her owner.

Special Needs Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation has raised $2,500 toward the 2-year-old dog's $8,000 medical bills.

The group has created a website, www.snarrdogpolice.com tracking Baby Girl's recovery.

She's being treated at a veterinary clinic in New Jersey.

Baby Girl was shot on Saturday in Staten Island's Schmul Park.

According to the Staten Island Advance, two dogs - not Baby Girl - got into a fight. Police said shots were fired in an attempt to bring the situation under control.

Police say the incident remains under review.
