CUMMING, Ga. — A man was bitten by a dog while he rode his bicycle, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

At noon March 10, a man was riding his bicycle up Hurt Bridge Road. The man told deputies three dogs chased him up a hill and one bit his left leg in the calf.

A witness told deputies where he thought the dogs lived. When deputies approached the residence, the homeowners' son said the dogs were dropped off and his parents had been caring for them. The owner said the dogs were up to date on their vaccinations, but didn't have documentation.

Animal Control was requested to take the dog that bit the rider. The victim declined medical treatment.
