BG woman cited after dogs allegedly bit a jogger


A Bowling Green woman has been cited after her dogs allegedly bit a man.

Bowling Green police officers were called to the 400 block of North Summit Street Friday at 10:20 a.m. for a report of a dog bite.

Dispatched advised an ambulance was en route.

Officers spoke with a 21-year-old man who showed his right lower leg that had a dog bite on it. He told officers he was jogging when two pit bulls started chasing him. One bit his leg, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.

A witness said she saw the dogs swarm the man on North Prospect and Ridge streets and called 911.

Dispatched reported the dogs had bit someone on Ridge Street on campus.

The dog warden was called and went to the Bowling Green State University stadium first to get a third dog related to the two BGPD was looking for, according to the report.

The two dogs suspected in the first incident began running between the 300 block of North Prospect and North Main streets. At one point, one of the dogs walked into a garage in the 400 block of North Prospect and the owner shut the door, locking it inside.

The second dog was cornered between cars in the 400 block of North Prospect until the dog warden arrived.

The dogs’ owner was eventually found in the 900 block of North Summit Street.

Both dogs were taken to the dog shelter and the warden said the agency had dealt with the dogs escaping in the past.

Kelly Ann Stevens was cited for failure to confine dogs.

She had been cited in June for the same offense, as well as failure to register dogs.
