Carlton Attacked By Dog
Singer Vanessa Carlton is recovering after she was attacked by a dog last week (02May10).
The A Thousand Miles hitmaker was jogging near her father's home in Shohola, Pennsylvania last Sunday (02May10) when a pitbull reportedly broke through his owner's electric fence and bit the singer's leg.
Her dad Ed confirmed she has suffered five puncture wounds on her leg but is otherwise "okay".
The singer has not yet made a statement to officials on the case, who are waiting for her account of the attack.
Ellen Howarth, regional supervisor for dog law enforcement, says, "We can't file charges based on hearsay. The victim has not yet given a formal statement."
