Alabama Boy Scout Attacked by Dog

A fifteen-year-old Boy Scout in Birmingham, Alabama was injured on Sunday (24DEC06) after being bitten by a dog. According to police Sgt. Brian Gilham, the teen was working at a Boy Scout tree lot on U.S. 31 and Canyon Road when the incident occurred. As the Scout was loading a Christmas tree onto the roof of an SUV, a dog that was inside the vehicle lunged at him through a half-open window and bit him. The teen was taken to Brookwood Hospital and given stitches on his upper right arm before being released the same day. It is not yet known whether the owner of the dog will receive a court summons.
