TOWN OF HUSTISFORD
- A 7-year-old boy has died after being severely bitten by a dog in Dodge County of eastern Wisconsin.
The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says in a statement that the incident was reported just before 5:30 p.m. Friday in the Town of Hustisford.
Lt. Brian Loos says that a 911 caller said the boy was bleeding profusely. He says dispatchers began to talk the mother through CPR while numerous agencies responded. But the child died at the scene despite extensive lifesaving efforts.
The statement says names, addresses and additional information about the nature of the incident and the dog won't be released for now out of respect to the family.
The dog was quarantined. Loos wouldn't say if it was the family pet or what breed it was.
