An off-duty Largo police dog bit a 10-year-old boy on March 1, the Tarpon Springs Police Department reported.

The dog was accidentally released from his fenced-in yard, TSPD said. The incident occurred about 4:29 p.m.

The boy was taken to an area hospital by his father and is in stable condition.

Because the incident involves a law enforcement officer’s residence and a Largo Police K-9, no further information was released.
