San Francisco Pet Owners Cited After Dog Allegedly Bite Child – NBC Bay Area

The owners of a dog that allegedly bit a child in San Francisco in May have been disciplined for failing to report it, according to police.

The dog allegedly bit a child near the 2700 block of Lombard Street on May 22 while walking with a caregiver, resulting in the child being admitted to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, police said in a statement Monday.

The reporting party alleged that the dog’s owners did not provide any identification or contact information at the time.

The dog owners, San Francisco residents, were cited Thursday for allegedly failing to provide information about the bite and report it to the Department of Animal Care and Control. Police say both incidents are violations of the San Francisco Health Code.

According to the police, further steps in the case will be taken in the near future.
