Woman bit by pit bull while trying to kiss it

A woman who tried kissing a pit bull, was bitten, after its owner said he warned her not to touch its ears, according to the Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo.

Police were called to the Days Inn in the 200 block of E. Ind. 45/46 bypass around 7:54 p.m. Saturday, after a 46-year-old woman and a man were arguing. The police found a woman with an injury to her upper lip who reported that she’d been bitten by a pit bull inside a vehicle in the parking lot of the hotel.

She woman told the police she loves pit bulls, so as she was petting the dog, she leaned to kiss the dog, and it big her on the lip, and she chipped one of her teeth as a result. The owner of the dog said he warned her not to touch the dog’s ears, because it has an infection.

The case has been forwarded to animal control, said the police.
