A Bibb County deputy was bitten by a dog about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday while responding to a reported theft, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Kim Rose, 51, was attempting to make contact with a possible suspect in the 4900 block of Faucett Drive when she approached a trailer, according to an incident report.
Rose noticed a “Beware of Dog” sign and beat on the porch to see if the dog was nearby. No dog responded, so she entered the porch and knocked on the trailer, according to the report.
A large, white German shepherd mixed-breed dog on a metal chain jumped onto the porch and on Rose, according to the sheriff’s office.
Rose raised her arm to defend herself and the dog bit her on the wrist. She left the porch and called for help, according to the report.
Rose received medical treatment but was back at work Thursday, said Sgt. Sean DeFoe.
The dog, Sugar Bear, and her puppies were taken into custody by animal control. The dog’s owner was cited for tethering a dog, according to the report.
