Owners cited in wake of dog attack
Sunday morning, officers responded to a reported dog attack on East Main Street. Upon arrival, the reporting party displayed a laceration on his left leg and a bite mark with puncture wounds on his right hand, which were reportedly sustained during an attack by two dogs. The party further indicated the dogs’ owner was outside at the time of the incident and denied the attack.
Upon interviewing the dogs’ owners, 30-year-old Travis Brossow and 46-year-old Theresa Zastrow, they reportedly indicated the victim had taunted the dogs and provoked the attack. Upon further investigation, it was discovered the dogs had been implicated in previous incidents, the most recent being in November of last year. The dogs were also found to be unregistered and had not been properly vaccinated. Rabies control forms were issued and both Brossow and Zastrow were cited for Keeping a Vicious Animal, failure to license the dogs and failure to vaccinate. The dogs were later transported to the Lincoln County Humane Society for quarantine until they can be properly evaluated by a veterinarian.
