UPDATE: From the Anne Arundel County Police Department:

On October 26, 2013, at approximately 6:34 p.m., officers responded to 200 block Glen Road, Glen Burnie, Md for the report of a child bitten in the face by a dog.

Officers discovered that a three year old male had been bitten by a neighbor’s lab/terrier mix. The dog, who resides in the 200 block of Glen Road, was confined in his own yard at the time of the incident.

Initial investigation indicates the child may have put his face under the fence through a hole when he was bitten by the dog.   The child initially was transported by his parents to BWMC.  Fire Department personnel responded back to the residence and located a portion of the child’s nose that had been bitten off by the dog and brought it to BWMC.  The child was then transported to Johns Hopkins Pediatrics Trauma in Baltimore for further treatment.

Anne Arundel County Animal Control responded to the address.  The owners of the dog cooperated with the inquiry and turned over the dog to Animal Control who will conduct further investigation into the incident.
