The biter dog will possibly be put down. The 4-year-old tried to play with neighbor’s dog underneath a fence separating his yard. The child had put a sock over his hand to play with the dogs. The dog the dog may have “ingested” the arm. The boy was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital for surgery. It was the dog’s first bite known incident. “There’s a severe injury to a human. So we are doing a dangerous dog investigation which could range from nothing being done up to including euthanasia,” Rhett Nicks, director of Davis County Animal Care and Control said.
Bear and Polar
Jessica Nusz, a friend of the owner, started the online petition to save the dogs, named Polar and Bear. People who signed the petition say the dog didn’t see that there was a child on the other side of the fence. “With him being a dog he thought it was a game of tug of war and he bit down too hard. … This situation is unfortunate on both sides.” Some of them said the parents of the 4-year-old, not the dogs, are to blame.
