A dog that bit a three year old boy in the face in Fremont was not current on his rabies shots. The dog is now being held in the Dodge County Humane Center to be observed for ten days, although it is doubtful that this indoors animal has rabies at all. The young boy, 11 month old Justin Schmidt, was taken to Creighton University Medical Center by helicopter from Fremont Medical Center in serious condition.
Lieutenant Kurt Burtoff states that the police were called to the boy's home before 8 AM and were told that Schmidt was laying in his mother's bed when the dog bit his face. The mother witnessed the event as well, and the family has said that they do not wish to have the dog returned to them after the observation period. Clem Rohde, head of the Humane Society, said that the dog will most likely be euthanized at that time.
