Bluefield dog owner faces charge after boy bitten » Latest Updates » Bluefield Daily Telegraph, Bluefield, WV

A local boy was bitten on his left arm and leg Monday after a neighbor’s dog crawled under a fence, crossed an alley and entered another yard despite being chained.

The incident occurred after 1 p.m. on the 2200 block of Toledo Street in Bluefield. Detective K.L. Adams of the Bluefield Police Department said police had been called previously about the dogs being kept there. The dog’s owner had nine dogs, some of them pit bull mixes. The dog involved in Monday’s incident was a mix between a Labrador retriever and a chow.

At the scene, the 7-year-old boy’s father, Mohammed Alotaibi, 27, of Bluefield said he had just returned to the city when he heard of the incident and rushed home. He took his son, who had bites on his left arm and leg, to a local hospital. The Bluefield Rescue Squad was on the scene.

Adams said the dog’s owner would be facing a felony charge of negligence. The city’s animal control officer was dispatched to take the dogs away.

Adams stated that the dog had been tied up, but got out through a hole it had dug under a fence, crossed an alley and got into a neighboring yard. The chain was long enough to reach that distance.
