The Fort Yukon police department isn’t releasing the boy’s name yet. Officer Chris Inderrieden says the little boy approached the nearby dog yesterday afternoon. He says the dog was chained up at the time. He says Fort Yukon police are investigating the attack, and are working with the District Attorney’s office. But he says it’s doubtful that criminal charges will be filed against the dog owner.
