Faribault Rottweiler Attack Update
Faribault police have identified the men attacked by two Rottweilers over the weekend.
Injured and transported to the Twin Cities with injuries to his left wrist, elbow and forearm was Curtis Tyler Schlussler, 30, of Faribault. Daryll Edward Pope, 35, of Faribault was treated and released from District One Hospital, and a 13-year-old boy also was treated and released from the Faribault hospital.
The two dogs were euthanized. Rabies testing is being completed on the two animals because they were not current on their vaccinations. According to information from the State Health Department, the only proven test is to examine the brain for the rabies virus and that's why it's recommended the suspected animal be euthanized. Blood tests have proven not to be reliable. Because rabies is so serious, the test needs to be as accurate and reliable as possible.
Faribault Police Chief Andy Bohlen told KDHL a full report will be given to the city attorney, and he will determine whether charges will be filed against the owner of the dogs.
