A Chuckey woman was issued a criminal summons Saturday for misdemeanor animals running at large in connection with an incident that happened on Sept. 21, according to a report on file at the Greene County Sheriff's Department.
Issued the summons was Lisa A. Crawford, 41, of 4340 Jearoldstown Road.
The report said that Crawford has four dogs, including a pit bull. The woman who filed it said that her son had been riding horses with friends and was on his way home "and the dogs came out biting the horse he was riding."
After the horse was bit several times by the dogs, "it took off running (and) the saddle slid over to the side," the report said.
Witnesses said the boy held on to the neck of the horse for a short distance and then let go, falling onto the ground.
The victim hit his head, chin, arms and back on the ground and was taken by Greene County-Greeneville EMS to Niswonger Children's Hospital in Johnson City, the report said.
"The horse he was riding also had several bite marks on his legs," the report added.
Crawford's first scheduled General Sessions Court appearance is today.
