LITH Woman Arrested for Biting Dog

Analise J. Garner also faces charges for domestic battery and underage drinking.

While it’s not uncommon to hear of an animal biting a person it’s quite strange when those roles are reversed.

But that is exactly the type of case the Lake in the Hills Police Department was dealt early Sunday.

Police arrested Analise J. Garner for animal cruelty at 411 Village Creek Drive, Apt. 2C, in Lake in the Hills, at 4:13 a.m. Sunday for reports that she bit her family’s 80-pound English Bulldog, said Sgt. Mark Smith of the Lake in the Hills Police Department.

Police reported Garner came home intoxicated and became “out of control” after her mother confronted the teen about her drinking, Smith said.

“She started to hit the mother and then bit the mother and then she turned on the family’s dog,” Smith said.

The dog bit her back once in her left arm, Smith said. Garner was taken to the hospital to have the bite checked out and then transported to McHenry County Jail.

The family refused medical treatment for the dog, Smith said.

Garner now faces charges for animal cruelty, domestic battery, domestic battery of an assaulting and provoking nature and consumption of alcohol by a minor.

Garner appeared in court on Monday and her bond is set at $3,000, according to the Northwest Herald. She is next expected in court on May 23, according to the NW Herald. 

Correction/Update 3:36 p.m.: Garner's name was incorrectly cited as Harper in the last sentence of this article. That has been corrected.

You might have hit on her at the bar, this is a good public service! Besides, it must have been a little important for you to make a comment, otherwise you can shrug and move on.

effin idiot. this girl deserves to be in jail, and so does her family for refusing to get the dog help. it's unreal how absolute morons (example A, this chick) are allowed the right to pets in the first place.

Hopefully this will be a wake-up call for the girl. I hope she's as ashamed of herself as she should be. Trouble.

What the hell does this even mean? Why does everything have to become a political debate? She bit a dog therefore she must be a liberal? We're just getting into the national political campaign mode and I'm already sick of people like Dan.
