Aug 15, 2010 ELGIN: Two Bitten, Two Cited on Dog Ordinance Violations

Two Elgin residents were cited on dog ordinance violations Saturday after their pets, in separate incidents, reportedly bit Elgin children, according to police reports.
A 15-year-old boy was treated for minor injuries at Provena Saint Josephs Hospital in Elgin after his neighbor's pet pit bull jumped a fence between the two yards and bit the boy's right leg, police said.
The second incident involved a poodle and occurred in the 200 block of South Melrose Street, according to police reports. A boy visiting the home of a family member there was playing with the poodle when the dog apparently bit him, reports said.
