It's probably safe to say that a Wilton man did not go into CVS in the town center looking for puncture wounds.
But that is, in fact, what he emerged with. According to police, the man went to pet a small, white Maltese dog in the store on Saturday, March 26. The dog proceeded to bite the man on his left middle finger, leaving two small wounds.
The dog's owner, who lives on Hubbard Road, was reportedly holding the dog at the time of the incident.
"Apparently the dog was not current on its rabies vaccine and was not licensed with the town of Wilton," said Wilton Police Lieutenant Don Wakeman.
As a result, Wilton's animal control officer responded and took possession of the dog to hold it in quarantine. Wakeman said the dog must be quarantined for at least 14 days.
"At the end of the quarantine, the dog will require a rabies vaccine and to be licensed," Wakeman said.
The owner was reportedly given a written warning for failure to vaccinate and license, but no other charges were filed. Wakeman said the bitten man's injuries were not serious.
