Dog owner faces charge after bite

Crawford County Animal Control was dispatched to the 200 block of East Franklin, Palestine, Friday, along with Palestine Police Department, after receiving a complaint of a dog bite near Palestine High School.

According to Chief Jeff Besing, he arrived about 12:55 p.m. and discovered a male student had been bitten on the left upper thigh by a brindle-colored pit bull.

Besing said upon arrival a resident had contained the dog after the attack took place. The pit bull and a smaller non-aggressive white and brown dog were detained by Animal Control Officer Denise McKinney.

The pit bull will be quarantined for a period of 10 days to make sure it has been vaccinated.

The male high school student was treated and released from the Crawford Memorial Emergency Room.

The pit bull's owner, identified as Jaime Moore, Palestine, was cited for a dog at large, resulting in a dog bite to a pedestrian.
