LA PINE, OR -- A Deschutes County deputy is recovering from multiple dog bites suffered during an attack outside of a La Pine-area home.
Law Enforcement Technician Laura Conard responded to the Golden Astor Road location, Tuesday, following reports that several dogs had been aggressive to pedestrians, including children walking from a school bus stop. While standing in the driveway, five adult pit bulls attacked Conard, biting her several times in the leg and wrist. She was able to fight them off and was treated by medics, later receiving stitches.
Charles and Tonya Williams were cited Thursday on five counts of Maintaining a Dangerous dog. Charles was also arrested on an unrelated warrant.
The animals are now in quarantine at the Humane Society shelter in Bend.
