JEANERETTE, LA (WAFB) -

A teenager is trying to heal to get back in the saddle after he fell off a horse and was bitten by a dog Sunday afternoon.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said Krystal Simon, 23, of Jeanerette was charged in the incident.

Deputies said a 15-year-old boy was riding a horse on Sorrel Road when a pit bull ran into the street and attacked the horse.

They said that's when the teen fell off and was bitten on the backside.

His condition is unknown.

Simon was issued a citation for violating the parish's leash law.

She was released on a summons to appear in court in February.

Animal control picked up the dog, which will be held for a 10-day observation period.
