A dog owned by Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was quarantined Monday after biting a neighbor near his Frisco, Texas, home, according to CBS affiliate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
A resident called police when he saw a dog loose in their yard fighting with their dog through a fence, according to the report. The neighbor came out and saw a second dog loose and attempted to intervene. The resident was bitten by one of the dogs, suffering non-life threatening injuries, and was eventually brought to a local hospital and is recovering.
After arriving on the scene, police learned the dogs were owned by Prescott and escaped his property through an unsecured door. The dog that bit the neighbor was sent to Collin County Animal Shelter and will be quarantined there for 10 days. The other dog was returned to Prescott’s residence.
The quarterback, who led the Cowboys to the divisional round of the playoffs last season, will likely have to pay a $500 fine for Dog at Large, a class C misdemeanor.
