Livermore Falls police officer Joe Sage was called to a Route 17 home for a reported dog bite incident Saturday morning. When he arrived, he found the child with severe facial injuries and bleeding heavily. The mother was also badly injured by the dog, a pit bull-wolf hybrid mix. Both were taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington by NorthStar EMS. According to police, the dog had been locked in a room and quarantined the previous day by the town’s animal control officer for undisclosed reasons. Apparently the doorway of the room in which the dog had been barricaded was low enough for the child to peer over, according to an email sent by Livermore Falls police Lt. Thomas Gould.
