GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — Commissioner Weston Spivey is now recovering following a “violent dog attack” that left him in the hospital.
According to a post on the commissioner’s page, Spivey was attacked by a pet German Shepherd.
“If you have a large animal never give it your complete trust or it will let you down,” Spivey wrote.
The attack left Spivey bloodied in what he said was “a fight to be alive,” but after getting some stitches and medical treatment, he said he’s feeling better.
Spivey extended his thanks to his neighbors and Slocomb first responders that helped him after the attack.
“Also would like to thank my girlfriend for being the calm in the middle of storm while I was losing blood,” he wrote.
