Spencer Dog Park in Sioux Falls is a very popular place for people to socialize all types of dogs. Unfortunately, sometimes pet owners are not as responsible as they should be.
On Monday evening (3/14) Animal Control responded to the scene of a dog bite at Spencer Dog Park at 3501 South Cliff Avenue.
A man had been bitten by a dog as he walked on the sidewalk between the two fenced-in dog park areas.
The victim stated as he was walking by the fenced dog park areas another man was walking his dog out of the small dog area.
The dog was on a leash but the dog ran up to the victim and bit him on the back of his leg.
