A dog in Crawford, Texas, bit a police officer and lived, reported Tuesday's KWTX News.
Though the news may seem benign, in this day and age, a dog who bites a police officer and lives to bark about it, can be considered "newsworthy."
The dog, breed not provided, had been running at large and was picked up by a Crawford police officer. When the dog was being corralled into a cage at the police department, the officer attempting to do the corralling was bitten on the arm.
Though it may come as a shock to some, the officer on the receiving end of the dog's teeth did not draw a gun and fire - apparently realizing that death was not imminent.
Now, the dog has been quarantined because the dog's owners were found and it was determined that the dog was not up-to-date on his vaccinations.
In yet another unusual twist, the dog, despite having bit an officer, will be returned to his owner after the 10-day quarantine is up - as long as the owner pays the fines and boarding fees are paid, and the dog does not develop any signs of disease.
According to the Crawford Police Chief, the dog is currently being held at the Waco Humane Society.
