“Following a serious dog attack in Woodridge on Monday afternoon, the council acted within its legislative powers to seize two Arabian-type bulls that were not registered or known to the council,” the council said in a statement.
“Today the two dogs were quickly and humanely euthanized in the interests of public safety.”
The council previously said it had “zero tolerance for irresponsible pet ownership and high-risk animal behaviour”.
Laquarna’s family told 7NEWS Tuesday morning that she is still at Queensland Children’s Hospital and “is fine.”
Her uncle, who came to her aid, was also bitten on the leg by the dogs.
He told 7NEWS that Laquarna looked “lifeless” when he reached her.
“I thought she was dead,” said the man, who asked not to be named.
He said Laquarna was by the fence when a dog pulled her down.
“She was pulled off the fence by one of the dogs,” he said.
“I just heard my mother scream in panic. Just jumped the fence to help her.
“One of the dogs wanted to attack her face. I threw a chair at the dog.
“I tried to throw her over the fence, but I ended up being mauled by the dogs.”
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
