JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

An animal control officer cited a Jonesboro man with two counts of harboring a dangerous animal after his dogs attacked a neighbor’s dog.

The victim told JAC she was walking her dog on a leash in the 3400-block of Saddle Creek Cove Friday evening when the attack happened.

The woman said she saw her neighbor, 28-year-old Taylor Mackey, walk out of his garage with his two large dogs. Neither animal was on a leash, the incident report stated.

To avoid any confrontation between the animals, the woman said she picked up her dog and walked to her yard.

When her dog barked, she said Mackey’s dogs “rushed over.”

“She ran up her steps but fell by her front door,” the incident report stated. “At this point one of the dogs attacked her dog while it was tucked under her arm.”

The second dog ran up to the front porch and the woman began to scream for her husband’s help.

He ran to the door and saw Mackey dragging his two dogs out of the yard, the report said.

According to the report, the victim’s dog suffered a puncture wound to its pelvic area.

Officer David Cooley contacted Mackey, whom he reportedly “knew from previous incidents of his dogs being at large.”

Due to the victim’s dog having a bite mark made by one of Mackey’s dogs and the other dog “showing extreme intent to bite/harm a person or other domesticated animal while off its property,” Cooley cited Mackey with two counts of dog at large and two counts of harboring a dangerous dog.

Cooley took both dogs to animal control.
