From the Argus, it appears dogs belonging to Dr and State Senator Blake Curd were involved in a serious dog biting incident:
The woman was walking near the 1300 block of South Elmwood Avenue at around 7 a.m. when she encountered two Tibetan Mastiffs, one male, one female, said Capt. Greg VandeKamp of the Sioux Falls Police Department.
The woman had bites to both legs and her right arm, and was treated at Sanford USD Medical Center. Police think the male dog bit her.
State Sen. Blake Curd and his wife Debbie own the dogs.
“We are distraught over what has happened and thankful it wasn’t worse,” Blake Curd said in a statement to the Argus Leader. “We hope for all to recover quickly and applaud the quick actions of the Sioux Falls Police Department, EMS personnel and Milo the animal control officer who responded to render assistance in this unfortunate circumstance.”
We certainly hope everyone involved is ok. That’s scary stuff, and but for the grace of God, could happen to any of us. As domesticated as they are, dogs are still animals.
