Dog escapes from pen, goes inside school and bites student
GREELEY, Colo. — A Siberian husky is under quarantine at a Greeley animal shelter after reportedly escaping from his owner’s pen and attacking a student inside Shawsheen Elementary School.
The student, who was not seriously hurt, was inside the school’s cafeteria when the dog made his way inside on Monday.
That dog, whose owners call Aspen, is now under medical review for at least the next ten days at the Weld County Humane Society. The dog’s owner, who lives just a few hundred feet away from the school, told FOX31 Denver on Wednesday that the dog has escaped several times in the past.
“We blocked it off so he couldn’t go under the fence then he started going over the fence,” said Amber Barthel, the owner of the Siberian husky.
Even after the rabies test is complete the dog is expected to be put up for adoption because the owners cannot afford to keep paying fines for his behavior.
“He’s a great dog, I just hope somebody can find him a home.” added Barthel.
