At 6:43 pm on Wednesday the Lawrence County Dispatch received a call from Mark Rutledge of 1st Street in Imboden claiming his daughter had been bit by a stray dog.


Dispatch called for an animal control officer to respond to the area and search for the animals. Rutledge requested a deputy to respond but refused an ambulance for his daughter.


The City of Imboden has a dog ordinance in place requiring dogs within the city limits to be registered if not kept in a pen or inside a residence.
