(AMERICAN FALLS, ID) – An American Falls woman wants the dog who bit her son to be declared vicious. Katrina Evans tells Local News 8 that her 17-year-old son, Robert Odom, was bit by a pit bull-mastiff mix during a party July 5. Evans asked the city council to act, but authorities say it’s up to animal control or the police department to make a final decision. Council member Kurtis Workman says the incident occurred at a party where underage drinking was going on, and that police have concluded that the dog’s behavior doesn’t warrant further action against its owner.
