MONTREAL, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A 6-year-old Canadian girl is fighting for her life after being mauled by four husky dogs, hospital officials in Montreal said Wednesday.

The girl, whose name has not been released, was attacked by the dogs while walking home from school Monday in the remote Inuit village of Kangirsuk, Quebec, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

The girl remained on a ventilator in intensive care in Montreal Children's Hospital, and her life was still at risk, though she has shown improvement, hospital officials told the CBC.

The dogs that attacked her have been destroyed.

Kangirsuk Mayor David Pinguapik said the girl was bitten all over her body and was saved by a witness who chased the dogs off.
