CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A woman is now without part of a finger after she tried petting a stray dog.

According to a Craighead County Sheriff’s Department incident report, the victim was at her daughter's house Sunday when a brown German Shepherd came up to her while she was sitting on the front porch.

When she reached out to pet the dog, it bit part of her middle finger off and ran away.

The victim was later taken to St. Bernards for treatment.
