The dog that mauled a 10-year-old boy at French Park last week has not been found and the child, Curtis Schultz, has begun a painful series of rabies shots.
The 10-year-old suffered three one-inch puncture wounds in his buttocks when the he was attacked from behind.
Last week, Emilie Schultz, Curtis' mother, was still hopeful that the owner of the dog would bring it forward to be quarantined, which would possibly eliminate the need for Curtis to go through the series of shots.
The dog is described as black, 80 pounds, and resembling a Labrador retriever. The dog was at the park with two young girls or one girl and a boy. One mother, who said that she might be the owner of the dog, contacted Shultz, but Schultz said her son was unable to positively identify the dog when he saw it.
Shultz said her son is scared and angry that the dog has not been brought forward.
"When you're a little kid like that you just want them to do the right thing," she said. Now she's afraid that her son will learn a painful lesson about doing the right thing. "I don't think anyone's going to come forward. I just hope if he's in that position he's going to do the right thing himself."
Curtis Schultz will continue with the series of rabies shots. The first two shots have been administered in the buttocks and the next three shots will be injected in the arm. Curtis told his mother that, on a pain scale of 1-10, the shots were a six and the attack was an 11.
"I'm pretty sure this, as an unprovoked attack, will happen again," Schultz said.
Anyone with info on the attack should call Emilie Schultz at 544-6655 or 550-2474.
