Elderly Alameda Woman Dies From Dog Bite

March 27, 2009

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- An 80-year-old Alameda woman has died at a local hospital several days after she was bitten in the hand by a dog while feeding it a dog biscuit ...

... it appears a neighborhood dog nipped Newell's index finger as she fed it a biscuit in the area of the Harbor Bay Landing Shopping Center.

The wound would not stop bleeding and Newell got a ride from a neighbor to a local hospital, McNiff said. However, she initially told both her neighbor and hospital staff she injured her finger while gardening.

Newell was released from the hospital after receiving a stitch ...

"She told her friend she didn't want the dog to get in trouble," McNiff said. On Monday, friends of Newell found her in serious condition on the bathroom floor of her home.

She was taken to the hospital where she died Tuesday of an aggressive bacterial infection, McNiff said.


Authorities are now looking for the finger biting dog, publicizing the owner is not in trouble. I think they want to find the source of that bacteria to confine or control it.
