DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A pit bull was taken away by the Animal Resource Center after it bit a woman in the wrist.
Officers responded to 61 South Wright Avenue around 7:45 p.m. Friday.
The dog’s owner, Robert Logel told police the victim is a friend of his wife. When the victim approached his front door, his seven-year-old dog jumped on the door, pushing it open and then bit the victim’s wrist and wouldn’t let go.
Logel was able to corral the dog into a bedroom before officers arrived.
The victim was taken to Miami Valley Hospital to be treated for the bite. Officers said she had a large laceration to her wrist and lost a significant amount of blood.
Logel told police the dog had also bitten a small child before.
He also stated that while he is looking after the animal, his son is the real owner of the dog. He said he’s been taking care of the dog because his son has been in prison for more than a year.
Logel surrendered the animal to the Animal Resource Center.
Police completed a dig bite quarantine.
