The Boston Globe reports that the unidentified 16-year-old girl was taken to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, R.I. Her condition was unknown.

Olivier Kozlowski, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, said on his Facebook page that the family let an animal control officer on Saturday take the dog named Milo, pointer-hound mix. He had remained with the family as it appealed the selectmen’s decision.

Bailey did not immediately return a call on Sunday.
