Woman Charged After Dog Bite Incident Aug. 18

Hermelinda Zavala, Archbold, was charged with failure to license a dog and failure to confine a dog as a result of a Sunday, Aug. 18 incident.

Karey E. Austin, 40, 208 North Lincoln Street, told Archbold Police she was mowing her lawn about 1:40 pm when she was attacked and bitten on the right calf by a Chihuahua.

APD turned the matter over to Brian Bannister, Fulton County dog warden.

“The dog doesn’t like loud noises,” Bannister said.

The wound was minor but did break the skin, so appropriate dog bite protocols were put into effect. State law requires the dog be rabiesquarantined for 10 days.

Bannister said the dog was let outside accidentally.
