Authorities Respond to Dog and Fox Bite Incidents

In recent days, the State College Police Department has responded to two separate incidents involving animal bites.

The first incident occurred about 6:20 p.m. Saturday in the 300 block of Ridge Avenue. Police say a mixed breed male dog entered a neighbor's property and attacked another dog.

At one point, police say the neighbor's dog entered the home while attacking the residents' dog. During the incident, the neighbor's dog bit one of the resident's in the hand and a second resident suffered knee injuries, police say. The residents' dog was also injured.

Authorities expect to cite the owner of the attacking dog for confinement and license offenses. The violations are summary offenses and will result in fines.

The second incident occurred about 9 p.m. Monday on Andover Drive in Harris Township where a fox reportedly attacked a woman.

Police say neighbors captured the fox and an officer was forced to kill the animal. The remains were then turned over to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for examination.
