Playing with a puppy sometimes results in an unintentional bite, and that’s what happened Monday, according to a police report. A female, age was not listed, had been jumping on a trampoline. It was a game she played with her 10-month-old puppy. When she would hit the trampoline, the dog would jump up from underneath and try to bite her foot. Well, as it unfortunately happened, she slipped, her foot went through the space between the trampoline and the frame, and the playful pup bit her on the foot with enough force that it punctured her shoe and her foot. The injury was not serious. “This is a case where it sounded worse than it was,” said Captain Eric Murphy.
A theft of a $50,000 company pickup truck was reported this morning in the 900 block of Elk Drive.

When he got up today, it was gone. There are no suspects. Murphy again issued a caution for city residents to take the keys to their vehicle(s) with them inside the house and to lock their vehicles to prevent just such an occurrence.
