An 11-year-old South Florida girl is recovering at the hospital after a dog mauled her face. Jacklyn Tucker underwent one of several procedures this week at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital for reconstructive surgery of her lip and the area around her mouth. Dr. Drew Schnitt said the girl will need one more operation.
