A dog bite is something most people are aware of but a human bite is not that common. Alma Cadwalader, A 19-year old woman from Oakland was accused of biting a female jogger who, in defence, pepper sprayed her dog.
Alameda County Judge issued a warrant after which the dog owner was arrested. Once the suspect was interviewed by the police Investigators she was booked for the associated charges at Santa Rita Jail.
The female jogger was attacked by the dog and then the owner on the Goldenrod Trail between the Chabot Equestrian Center and the Oakland City Stables in Oakland, the police stated. “A physical altercation ensued, where the victim was bitten by the suspect, causing significant injury,” read the statement.
“It was pretty obvious it was not canine bites but rather human teeth,” police Lt David Phulps told NBC. “In addition to the bite, there was punching, kicking. This dog owner stopped her in her tracks on the trail,” he added. The news report stated that the attack by the teenager on the jogger was a “violent response” to the dog being pepper sprayed.
Whether it was a “violent response” or “helping a best friend out” we’ll never know. It doesn’t mean that attacking and biting is the correct way to act, but it also might be a natural response for defending the ones who you love. They say that everything is allowed in love and war. This woman definitely loved her dog a lot.
