ALBANY, Ga. — Residents reported a pit bull bite, a mixed golden retriever bite and a cat bite earlier in the month, according to Albany Police Department incident reports issued Monday.
James Rudder of the 700 block of Ninth Avenue reported that a gray-white pit bull impounded Jan. 13 for attacking Rudder's 10-year-old daughter that day belonged to Alfred Paul Hunter, the report stated.
"The dog had been impounded and quarantined for rabies observation due to the dog having jumped the fence and bit a little girl in the alley," animal control supervisor Sherman Capers wrote in the report. "Mr. Hunter was very apologetic about the incident."
Capers issued citations to Hunter at 714 10th Ave. for animal at large and not having current rabies vaccinations for the dog. Hunter was instructed to appear in court to answer the charges.
In a Jan. 17 dog-bite incident, a "golden mix dog" bit Curtis Stanfield while he worked at a residence on the 2600 block of Wellington Drive, a report states.
Capers cited Bernard Byron, of 2609 Wellington Drive, for having an animal at large and not having a current rabies vaccination for his dog, which was quarantined.
A stray cat bit Elizabeth Anne Warner on the hand while she was feeding it Jan. 13, another report stated. Capers put out a trap, captured the cat and took it to the Humane Society for observation.
Capers reported, "I advised Mrs. Warner not to feed any stray cats."
