If “man bites dog” is what makes news, “woman bites” dog is sure to make big news.
The police of Lake in the Hills, Ill., are discovering that after they arrested 19-year-old Analise Garner for biting her family bulldog, Kingston, numerous times in the back during a domestic disturbance.
Police in this Illinois village acknowledge that Kingston also bit Garner on the left hand, but say it was only after she attacked the dog early Sunday morning.
“The bulldog finally did bite her back in self-defense,” Sgt. Mike Smith told the local press.”
Smith added, “There were no charges against the dog.”
As in all cases where dog bites person—even if a man or woman first bites dog—the McHenry County animal-control office was notified. A standard bite report noted that Kingston is a three-year-old, 80-pound neutered male with no previous history of biting. It did turn out that Kingston’s rabies vaccinations were not up to date, and as a further matter of routine the dog was placed on a 10-day-quarantine in the home supervised by a local vet.
Garner, meanwhile, was ordered by the court to stay away from the apartment for 72 hours. Her bites promise to have no lasting physical effect on Kingston.
“The dog is fine,” a county animal-control supervisor is happy to report.
