Police Investigating Dog Bite

A Frankfort woman says she was simply trying to go to work when she was attacked by her neighbor's dog.

It happened around 7 :00 Friday morning on Pradero Road, which is just off U.S. 60.

Paramedics and police rushed to the normally quiet neighborhood after B.J. Hodge says her neighbor's dog, 2-year-old Andy, bit her in the leg.

"I was leaving to go to work and the dog across the street had run up & bit my ankle," explained Hodge.

Hodge says Andy's teeth are responsible for two deep cuts on her ankle. She says the dog has been a problem before.

"It hasn't bitten me, but it has run at me like it was gonna do something. Usually you can tell it to "shoo" and it'll go away," she said.

Andy's owner, who lives across the street, did not want to speak on-camera. She says her nephew mistakenly let Andy out this morning as he was leaving for school.

She says her dog can be a little territorial sometimes and she has taken him to obedience school.

But Hodge insists it still needs some training.

"I don't think it is a bad dog. I don't want anything bad to happen to the dog. They need to control it. Either keep it in the fenced yard or find another home for it," she said.

Police did fill out a report and Hodge's son took her to the hospital to be treated.

Officers on the scene say they contacted the Franklin County Dog Warden to investigate the situation.
