Dog quarantined after biting woman

NEW CASTLE — A mastiff-type dog has been quarantined after it reportedly bit a woman in the thigh and back end.

A 26-year-old Fombell woman told police she had been walking around 1:10 p.m. Saturday on West Terrace Avenue when a large dog tied in a front yard barked at her, broke free from its cable and bit her. She said a man came out of the house and took control of the dog before police arrived.

The owner told New Castle police the dog is under 9 months old, territorial and had been tied in the front yard.

Police said the dog would be quarantined, pending investigation by the city’s dog law officer.

The woman sought medical treatment at Jameson Hospital for her bite wounds.
