KENT, Minn. -- A 32-year-old Kent man faces a misdemeanor charge in Wilkin County District Court after his dog injured a neighbor.

Conrad Kondos will be sent a citation charging him with allowing a dangerous dog to run at large, Rick Fiedler, chief deputy with the Wilkin County Sheriff's Department, said Wednesday.

Fiedler said Kondos owned a mixed-breed dog that attacked Tamara Nelson Monday afternoon.

The dog chased Nelson's cat across her property when the 23-year-old woman attempted to rescue the cat from the canine, he said.


The dog bit Nelson on her back and right arm, causing wounds that required 50 stitches to close, Fiedler said.

Kondos, who lives near Nelson, was not home at the time, Fiedler said.

The dog weighed about 50 pounds and had updated shots, he said. However, it was euthanized Tuesday for rabies tests at Nelson's request, Fiedler said. Test results weren't available Wednesday, he said.

The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of a $700 fine and/or 90 days in jail.

Neither Nelson nor Kondos had listed telephone numbers and neither could be reached for comment Wednesday.
