Poodle bites hiker in Park City off-leash area
March 15, 2016
A dog bit a woman in the Round Valley off-leash area last week, the Park City Police Department said.
The police received the report at 5:20 p.m. on March 9. Phil Kirk, a police captain, said the victim went to the Park Avenue police station to report the bite.
Kirk said the woman was hiking when she came across a woman hiking with a dog off a leash. As the victim walked past, the dog, described as a large poodle, bit her on an arm once, Kirk said. She suffered two puncture wounds on the left forearm, he said.
The dog owner stopped and provided contact information, Kirk said. The police told the woman to go to a clinic for medical attention, he said.
The victim is 65 years old and lives in Park City. The owner of the dog is 62 years old. The dog owner’s city of residence was not immediately available.
The Police Department forwarded the case to Summit County Animal Control for further investigation.
