CAMANO ISLAND — A wolf-dog hybrid bit a 4-year-old boy several times Thursday afternoon on Camano Island, according to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.
The 14-month-old dog attacked around 3:30 p.m., when the child was playing with a friend on Lost Forest Lane.
The boy was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett with injuries to his head, neck, hip, groin and buttocks, the sheriff’s office said.
By Friday afternoon, he was back home.
Families involved in the incident are cooperating with law enforcement, the sheriff’s office said. Animal control has picked up the wolf-dog hybrid.
“We would like to reiterate that (the) involved dog has been contained and there is currently no danger to the public,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
