Kelly Massey suffered “a significant bite,” and possibly a broken hand, in the incident that occurred about 9:15 a.m. in Fairhaven, according to Mattapoisett Police Chief Mary Lyons.
For reasons that were not completely clear, Massey drove a German Shepherd to the Mattapoisett Animal Shelter "to get shots" according to Mattapoisett Police Chief Mary Lyons.
Fairhaven Town Administrator Mark Rees said he does not know why Ms. Massey took the dog to Mattapoisett instead of using a veterinary hospital closer to the shelter. He did say that he believed Fairhaven had a “longstanding relationship” with the Mattapoisett Animal Hospital.
