CAPE TOWN - A six-year-old Somerset West girl is recovering in hospital after she was mauled by her neighbour's pit bull.

Nikita Moses was attacked by the dog on Friday while playing at her neighbour's house and sustained serious head injuries.

Family friend Martie Danford claims Moses was left unattended for about three hours at the Tygerberg Hospital and only treated after a doctor was threatened.

Tygerberg Hospital says little Nikita is now in a stable condition.
