A Union City woman was charged with harboring a vicious animal after her dog allegedly bit another woman.
Cindy Gurien, 44, of 1401 Edwards St., Union City, was issued a citation Saturday charging her with harboring a vicious animal, according to a Union City Police Department report.
The charge was levied after Linda Smethwick of 729 Sherrill St., Union City, was walking through an alley behind 1401 Edwards St. and was allegedly bitten by a dog which belonged to Ms. Gurien. Police indicated she sustained a wound to her lower right leg.
Ms. Gurien provided up-to-date shot records for the dog, according to the report, which did not list the breed of the dog.
