Karen Tucker was going on her normal evening walk in 1700 block of Crescent Drive on Thursday March 24th, when she was bitten by a dog. Two girls were walking the dog when the dog jumped at Tucker from out of nowhere and left her with injuries that sent her to the hospital.
"At the time I didn't know what had happened," said Tucker. "I was in shock and I turned and screamed at them. I didn't mean to do that -- the dog had just bit me. I continued my walk and realized there was something wrong."
Odessa Animal Control is looking to investigate the incident. The dog involved is described as a medium-sized boxer or boxer-mix. It's a light yellow color with a white stripe around it's belly and neck.
