I spent the weekend at my way-below-acceptable-temperature-what-am-I-doing-in-this-water pool. Others in the area had less than ideal weeks:
At 11:13 a.m., an employee of Republic Waste attempted to remove a trash can from a home in the 4400 block of Mockingbird Lane. When doing so, the man was bit by a Jack Russell terrier named Tank. The bite broke the skin, and the dog is currently serving a 10-day quarantine.
At 4:30 p.m., a labrador/German Shepard mix named Bella nipped a woman’s ankle in the 4700 block of Lakeside Drive. The dog’s owner and the woman exchanged contact information, and the dog has been placed under quarantine for 10 days. A review of the dog’s records by HPDPS revealed that Bella’s rabies vaccination is expired, and the dog is not registered in Highland Park.
Moral of the story? Stay by the pool.
