NAPLES, FL (WBBH/NBC) - The young dog mauling victim at the center of an alleged hoax has arrived in Florida to be fitted with a new prosthetic eye.

Victoria Wilcher, 3, arrived from Mississippi with her family to meet a Naples expert in prosthetics.

Wilcher has been in the spotlight recently after her grandmother claimed she was kicked out of a Mississippi KFC due to her facial scars.

Wilcher was mauled by a pit bull and lost her right eye in the attack. Naples ocularist Raymond Peters plans to fit Wilcher for a new series of eyes.
