That's what Hubby was told today, after being bitten (2x) by one of his offender's dogs yesterday. Actually the situation is not as serious as it could have been. The dog HAS had all of it's shots, so the "house quarentine/death watch" is just a precaution. They (DHEC) on behalf of animal control "watch" the dog for 10 days to make sure it doesn't have rabies. Apparently, if the dog had rabies, it would drop dead within the aforementioned 10 days & they'd know to start hubby on a rabies vaccine. For now he's just on antibiotics.
And, yes, they did get the guy they were there to arrest. ;-)
