Fairfield Police Department log of calls to dispatch Wednesday, included:

11:26 a.m. postal carrier reports being bitten Tuesday by a brown English bull dog in the 600 block of South Sixth Street. His right hand has puncture wounds. He did not seek medical attention. Dog owner, Cameron Cooksey, 603 S. Sixth St., was present and prevented his dogs from further attack. Cooksey said his dogs are not registered with the city. He was issued a warning and given two weeks to register the dogs. Cooksey was cited for harboring vicious animals. Cooksey said his dogs were vaccinated for rabies March 20, 2013. He believes it was his white dog, not the brown one, which bit the carrier. Cooksey said he would have his dogs vaccinated for rabies today, Thursday. An animal bite form was filled out and sent to Jefferson County Public Health.

8:11 p.m. David White was arrested on a warrant.

8:18 p.m. Jefferson County Health Center reported a 4-year-old boy brought to the hospital by his father; the boy was bit on the eyelid by the family dog, a terrier. The injury required stitches. The father said the dog is up to date on all shots, wasn’t sure of date of most recent rabies vaccination. Son had been hitting the dog with a pillow when bit. A police officer will contact the vet clinic today to learn the exact date of the dog’s most recent rabies shot, and send a report to Jefferson County Public Health.
