Dogbite Victim Treated At Cookeville Hospital

A Putnam County man has learned the hard way that it's probably not a good idea to try and break up a fight between dogs. The man showed up at Cookeville Regional Medical Center with bite wounds to both of his hands. He told Deputy Chris Brown that his dog and another dog were trying to fight and he stepped in to break it up. That's when one of the dogs -- described as a white bulldog -- bit him. The victim told Brown that the dog has had its rabies shots this year, but Brown advised keeping the animal quarantined for ten days -- just in case.
