Young boy suffers serious injuries from dog bite

A four-year-old city boy suffered serious facial injuries when a recently purchased family dog bit him Sunday morning around 7:30.

The Bellefontaine Police Department reports that Andrew Hall of 117 West Auburn Avenue was playing with the dog's tail when the pet lashed out and bit him in the face.

Bellefontaine Fire and EMS transported Hall to Mary Rutan Hospital. He was then transferred to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.

The St. Bernard mix was taken by the Logan County Sheriff's Office dog warden to the Humane Society serving Logan County. The dog will be quarantined for ten days.

The incident was also forwarded to the Bellefontaine Prosecutor's Office and Logan County Health District for review.
