Police were called out to La Porte Hospital after a report came in that a man had been bitten by a dog and was refusing to disclose the name of the owner of the animal.

According to the police report, the victim told them that he was petting his friend's penned in dog on Sand Road in Union Mills when the dog bit down.

The man told them that when he pulled his hand away, it punctured the skin on his left hand.

Eventually, police say the man gave them the owner's name, due to the police department's regulations, but persisted that the bite was his fault, that the dog was not dangerous, is always in a pen and up to date with shots.

A report was made but no legal action is likely to occur.
