Evergreen dog owner Carol Peterson pleaded guilty to a class 2 misdemeanor June 29 for an incident in which her Labrador mix attacked a Hiwan Hills woman on May 18. Peterson paid $151 in fines and court fees. A restitution hearing is set for Sept. 14.

The Hiwan Hills woman who was attacked was bitten five times on the backs of both legs while walking down the street near a home on 2957 Hiwan Drive.

Deputies who responded reported that the Labrador and five chihuahuas were running loose and acting aggressively, the police report said. The officers had to use pepper spray and chased the dogs back into the house.
