School Seeks Leads In Dog Bite Incident
Officials at the Black Oak School in Twain Harte are asking that dogs be kept away from the school grounds, after a little girl was bitten by a dog there Monday night.
A teacher was working to prepare for school – which starts there next week – during that time her 11 year-old daughter was bitten. Superintendent Mike Brusa said there are signs posted. “Sometimes people bring their dogs up here. TheyÂ´re not supposed to,” Brusa said.
The girl wasnÂ´t badly hurt. “Mostly she was quite scared and frightened,” her mom Jalane King said. “It wasnÂ´t a deep puncture wound. It mostly ripped her shorts.” But doctors may have to treat the little girl for rabies if they canÂ´t confirm the dog wasnÂ´t carrying the disease.
The parents of the girl donÂ´t plan to press any charges. The man who was with the dog is described only as in his forties. If you have any information, please call the school at 586-0999.
