KENNEL ATTENDANT POSITION CONSIDERED WHAT HAPPENED The City Council decided to consider reinstating a kennel attendant position for the police department. WHAT IT MEANS The city may bring back a second kennel attendant position that had been eliminated from the city budget. The police department would like a second attendant because officials are dealing with a higher number of animals at the shelter that are staying there longer. The estimated cost for the position is $48,000.

If a kennel worker gets bitten, can that worker sue the dog owner or is that one of the risks you take when you sign up to work at a kennel? This incident took place in 2000 starring Marta Priebe as the kennel worker and Russell Nelson as the dog owner. Priebe worked at a kennel where Nelson took his dog. One day the dog mauled Priebe's foot and ankle causing nerve damage. Priebe's complaint alleges that Nelson never told her about his dog's violent tendencies. Nelson's dog was not a biting virgin, as it had previously attacked Nelson and one other man sending them both to the hospital.
