5-year-old sent to hospital after being attacked by dogs

KINGSFORD — Members of the Kingsford Police Department were dispatched at approximately 8 PM on Tuesday to the 500 block of Saratoga Avenue to investigate a report of a five-year-old child being attacked by two dogs.

Police determined that the attack occurred after the child entered the home of a neighbor’s house alone. The dogs did not put anyone outside of the home in danger.

The child had already been taken by his father to the Dickinson County Emergency Department for medical attention prior to it being reported.

The dogs and their owners have been identified and have cooperated with the investigation. Both of the dogs were found to be up to date on their vaccinations and will be kept under quarantine. The child was treated for injuries and released.

The complaint will be followed up by the Dickinson County Sheriff Department Animal Control.
