JACKSON, MS - Was it all a hoax?

That's the question facing people who've rallied behind a 3-year-old girl in Mississippi. The girl's family said they were asked to leave a KFC franchise because an employee said the girl's injuries from a mauling by a pit bull were disturbing the other customers.

KFC says the restaurant's internal investigation couldn't verify that the incident took place. An outside investigator is now being hired.

A posting on a Facebook page set up for the girl is denying that it was a hoax.

KFC says its commitment of $30,000 to help with the child's medical bills won't be affected by the investigation's outcome.
