THE BRONX - A 3-year-old boy is recovering after police say a pit bull mauled him at the Fox Playground yesterday.

Officials say Ely Gordilis was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital and required 28 stitches to close his wound.

The NYC Parks Department says that no animals are allowed inside the playground, but police do not suspect any criminality in the case.

The boy's mother, Iris Acosta, says she does not know the dog's owner and wants something done to the dog.
