Woman loses part of finger trying to separate fighting dogs

A 66-year-old Town of Lockport woman lost part of her left little finger Feb. 16 while trying to break up a fight between her two dogs, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office reported.

She also suffered other bites during the incident just after 7 a.m. in her Crestwood Drive home, deputies said, and was treated at the scene by a crew from the Rapids Volunteer Fire Department.

The woman, who reportedly had two dogs removed from her home in the past, was reluctant to report the incident and told deputies the dogs had been taken away. When officers learned they were still inside her house, a family member was called to facilitate their removal by a dog control officer. An investigation is continuing.
