Man reports dog bite
A Fed Ex driver called police after being bitten by a poodle at a Saunders Settlement Road address on Friday.
The 34-year-old man said he was delivering a package when the 60 pound black poodle ran out of the house and bit him on the hand.
The homeowner let the Fed Ex driver into the home to clean up the wound and later told Niagara County Sheriff's deputies, "He bites," when asked if the dog had bitten anyone before.
The driver said he was going to get medical treatment for the wound.
The homeowner said the poodle was up to date on his shots. Information on the incident was forwarded to the county health department.
