A Barrington resident's dog attacked two men on a garbage truck on Friday, biting one of the workers in his right calf.
According to EastBayRI.com, the dog, a white terrier named Butter, got away from its owner and chased after the garbage collector.
The driver of the truck told police he left the cab to try and help the other worker when the dog turned and went after him, the website reported.
Police later contacted the dog's owner, and an officer transported the dog to the East Providence Animal Shelter for a 10-day quarantine.
Police said it's the second time the dog has attacked someone.
According to police, the dog could face a vicious dog hearing in the future.
