A Calverton man was hospitalized earlier this month after a dog bit him in the groin and severed the tip of his penis, Riverhead Police said.
The man told police he was “working with the dog” when the Nov. 9 attack occurred. He was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead and later transferred to Stony Brook University Medical Center.
The man’s wife told police the couple adopted the dog, a bullmastiff, from a friend several months ago and had planned to have it euthanized before the attack due to its aggressive behavior. It could not be confirmed that the dog was put down after the incident.
