Woman Charged After Hiding Dog Who Attacked Boy

A teenage boy still has no answers after being bit by a Pit Bull this summer. The dog’s owner has now been arrested, but she’s still not talking.

It was on 57th Avenue and Ogden Street on July 17th, that a 14-year-old boy was outside. A white Pit Bull came up and bit him on his buttocks and his foot. The next thing that happened: the dog’s owner grabbed the dog and drove away.

A few months later, still no dog, but NHS did find the dog’s owner.

“Because the owner refused to turn the dog over to us in this situation, it opened the possibility up of the victim of having to undergo rabies shots, which is not a pleasant experience, and there’s no reason in the world why this owner should not have cooperated with us,” says Mark Langan, of the Nebraska Humane Society.

The Nebraska Humane Society’s hands were tied. They say Amanda Gossett wouldn’t cooperate or hand over the animal, so she was arrested and charged.

“It is concerning that we don’t know where the dog is at, because the dog has already bitten a 14-year-old, so if anybody has information where this dog might be, give us a call here at the Nebraska Humane Society, we’d like to attempt to locate this dog,” Langan says.

Gossett faces seven misdemeanor charges. Her bond was set by a judge Thursday at $5,000.

If you have any information on the case, call the Nebraska Humane Society at 402-444-7800 Ext. 1.
