Dunlap Tennessee Dog Attack
This Dog Has Attacked Multiple Children
On 10-28-09 Ptl Lynn Lewis and Sqt. Keith Land were Dispatched to Jones drive in the city of Dunlap Tennessee to a dog bite . When the officers arrived they spoke with the victims mother . The mother told the officers that the victim had took their small dog out on a leash to walk it in their driveway . The victim heard the dog from next door , belonging to Jana Tackett , came running at the victim . The victim ran toward the apartments next to her and Jana Tackett’s dog attacked the little girl biting her on her left knee , breaking the skin and leaving a red mark . The victims’ mother called 911 and asked for an ambulance . The victims mother and Jana Tackett each had words with each other . Jana Tackett put her dog up before the officers arrived . The victims mother did not want to press charges . The mother asked the officers if they could ask Jana Tackett to put the dog up and keep it up because she has seen the dog running loose , chasing other children walking on Jones Drive . Jana Tackett agreed and advised officers she would be trying to find the dog a new home .
I had to change some things the victim was a minor child . Nowhere in the report did it say the dog had a rabies vaccine . This is disturbing and dangerous because rabies is incurable after the first symptom appear in humans . The symptoms can take a year to develop . Only one person in history has survived after the first symptoms appeared .
Preliminary symptoms differ among patients. Once the CNS is already affected, the symptoms are extreme; the patient tends to alternate between stages of disturbance and periods of silence. During this time, a regular symptom is tremors of the muscles of the pharynx and the mouth which happen when the patient senses air drafts or drinks liquids. Actually, when the patient sees water or even thinks about, he immediately shows fear followed by spasms of his oro-pharyngeal muscles. This extreme fear of water is commonly called hydrophobia. The last stages of the disease result from extensive destruction of nerve cells in the spinal cord and the brain.
