Grants Pass, Ore. -- An Oregon State Trooper was bit by a dog Saturday morning after responding to a disturbance call.

Raven  Broswell said her neighbor, Dawn Hemry-Boyle showed up at her house Saturday morning yelling and threatening them with a Pit bull by her side, so they called police. 

"We kept telling her to get off the property and she had her dogs with her so we had to put ours inside so that they wouldn't fight."

OSP Trooper, Josh Quick, arrived to the house on the 5800 block of fish hatchery road in Grants Pass.

While trying to arrest Hemry-Boyle, her pit bull bit Trooper Quick in the leg. Trooper Quick then shot the dog in self defense.              and the dog ran off. Quick was sent to the hospital and has been released.

 Bur Broswell said this isn't the first time Hemry-Boyle's dogs caused trouble with them. And said she is just thankful nobody else got hurt.

"I hope that nothing like this happens again because I was really worried we have neighbors behind us."

Hemry-Boyle is facing several charges including menacing and trespassing.

Police said her Pit bull was euthanized with her permission.
