• May 18: KCSO officer Amy Siples responded to a residence off Dundee Road in reference to a dog bite. Complainant stated she was at the residence talking to friends when she heard screams from the front yard. She ran to the front yard where she saw three dogs attacking a small boy. Complainant then ran toward the dogs, yelling at them to get away. The dogs turned on her and bit her several times in both legs. The boy was able to run to safety, but had several bite marks on his thighs. The victim was taken to his home by officers and released to his father. Complainant fought off the animals and ran inside to call police. The dogs then ran down the street to another residence, where they attacked a man while he was mowing his lawn. The man stated the dogs jumped on him and knocked him down, but he used the lawn mower as a barrier and ran into his house. Another man saw this attack as he was in his vehicle, and drove his vehicle toward the dogs, distracting them so the male victim could escape. Animal Control arrived and located the owner of the dogs; the dogs were identified by all the victims. The dogs’ owner, a Duzane Drive woman, yelled and cursed at the Animal Control officer, and was “extremely rude and belligerent,” refusing to place her dogs in the officer’s truck. The owner then let her dogs out of the house, at which point one of them attempted to attack the Animal Control officer. Another of the dogs was growling and barking, and had to be restrained by the owner. All of the victims refused an ambulance but elected to drive to the emergency room themselves.
