The Craighead County Sheriff’s Department said a group of dogs had to be quarantined after one of them bit a young girl.

According to a report from Deputy Jeff Franks, he responded to a call about a dog bite on Thursday.

When he arrived, the victim told Franks she went for a run and passed a home in the 1500-block of County Road 403 when several dogs attacked her.

According to the report, one dog bit her on her right calf.

The victim’s mother took her daughter to the emergency room for treatment.

Franks went to the home of the dogs and told the owners the animals would have to be quarantined for 10 days.

The report stated the victim could not identify which dog bit her.
