Report: Dog bites 3-year-old at Florida restaurant

A family visiting from Louisville, Kentucky, said their 3-year-old son was badly bitten by a dog at a Neptune Beach, Florida, restaurant Wednesday.

The boy had a cut on his lip and scratches on his face after the dog bit him at Craft Pizza Co. on July 19.

The owner confirmed that the boy was on the outside patio when the dog bit him.

A family member posted a review of the restaurant and photo of the boy’s injuries on TripAdvisor. The family member, who appears to be a parent of the boy, said while they were leaving the restaurant, the child asked a man if he could pet his dog.

According to the post, the dog turned and bit the boy in the face. It left scratches and puncture wounds inside his lip, the family said in the post.

“I immediately grabbed my screaming 3 year old and took him from the place,” the post said. Mean while (sic) as I was trying to wipe the blood from my sons face they actually brought the dog a bowl of water. Really!!!??? He just bit my 3 year old.”

The post said the boy spent a day in the emergency room.

The customer complained that when the family decided to go back and get the dog owner’s information, the restaurant owner was talking to the dog owner. 

According to the parent who wrote the TripAdvisor post, the restaurant owner and pet owner are friends.

“Nothing was offered to us outside of some ice and a napkin,” according to the parent. “I actually requested the owner to contact me. Nothing.”

The restaurant has a dog dining permit, which is required by the city of Neptune Beach if a restaurant wants to allow dogs on the outdoor portion.

The owner of Craft Pizza Co. said he is sorry about the incident. He said the man regularly brings his dog and it has never been aggressive before.

The owner told us the family and the dog owner exchanged contact information for insurance purposes.

He said he is considering no longer allowing dogs at his restaurants because of the liability.

City of Neptune Beach officials said the city has the right to revoke a restaurant’s dog dining permit depending on the infraction.

“It would probably depend in the infraction, but we do have the right to take it away immediately” Amanda Askew, deputy manager for Neptune Beach, said. “We do not need a police report to revoke any permit.”

The city has never revoked a permit since the ordinance was passed in Neptune Beach in 2008, Askew said.

Police said they received an anonymous tip about the incident, but a complainant never came forward. Animal control officers are trying to get in contact with the family members to learn if they want to file a report.

'My Friend Cayla' doll could give strangers access to your child, investigation finds

The “My Friend Cayla" doll gives anyone with a Bluetooth-enabled phone access to your child — and consumer groups want the federal government to pull the popular toy from store shelves.

>> Read more trending news

Using an app, parents can have entire conversations with their children through the doll — but so could strangers.

That's why some people say the doll could open the door for a child predator. Privacy concerns led Germany to ban the sale of the doll, which is made in the United States.

An attorney filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission to pull the doll from shelves in the United States.

“If the doll is turned on, [anyone] can see that the doll (is) available and could pair with it on their phone using Bluetooth,” said attorney Chris Laughlin, who filed the complaint.

An investigation by WJAX-TV found that anyone within 90 feet of the doll can easily access it with Bluetooth. You can say anything — and it’ll come out through the speaker.

Strangers can have a two-way conversation with your kid — and all they will need is a phones.

Robin Luaway is among those who are concerned about the doll.

“We should go back to how it was,” Luaway said. “Play outside."

Cayla’s terms of service warns that it cannot guarantee that the Cayla app will be free of content that you might consider unacceptable. The company says its safeguards do not replace parental supervision.

But when you read Cayla’s terms of service on its website, it clearly says that they “will use information collected about you for a variety of business purposes."

The FTC has not yet responded to the attorney's complaint.

WJAX-TV reached out to Cayla's software company for a comment on the allegations in the FTC complaint, but the company has not responded.

Snopes.com co-founder pleas for help, says the website may shut down for good

Snopes.com, which bills itself as “one of the Internet’s oldest and most popular fact-checking sites,” is in dire financial straits and hopes to raise $500,000 it says is needed to keep the site afloat, according to a GoFundMe linked to by Snopes.

>> Read more trending news

Snopes’ GoFundMe says the site has been “cut off from our historic source of advertising income.” Co-founder David Mikkelson founded the site with his then-wife Barbara Mikkelson in 1994, according to the page, incorporating Bardav, Inc. — a name using a combination of their first names — as a company to control the site.

>> RELATED: Who will save us from political lies? Not the online fact-checkers

The debt stems from a legal battle between Bardav, now managed exclusively by David Mikkelson, and a web services provider, Proper Media, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. When David and Barbara Mikkelson divorced in 2016, Barbara left Bardev, Inc. and sold her 50 percent equity interest in Snopes to Proper Media.

David Mikkelson says that while he maintains control of the site’s content, he says the site is otherwise held “hostage” by the media company, despite the fact that he’s attempted to “end” the contract with them:

[The] contractual relationship ended earlier this year, but the vendor will not acknowledge the change in contractual status and continues to essentially hold the Snopes.com web site hostage. Although we maintain editorial control (for now), the vendor will not relinquish the site’s hosting to our control, so we cannot modify the site, develop it, or — most crucially — place advertising on it. The vendor continues to insert their own ads and has been withholding the advertising revenue from us.

The GoFundMe states that money raised will go to “continue operating the site and paying our staff (not to mention covering our legal fees).”

Bardav, Inc. was sued by Proper Media this year, shortly after Mikkelson moved to end the contract Bardav, Inc. held with Proper Media. Proper Media claims that they’re the victims of “a lengthy scheme of concealment and subterfuge to gain control of the company and to drain its profits.”

The story of Snopes is deeply tied into the Mikkelson’s divorce, which accounts say was exacerbated by managing the site.

A Daily Mail investigation says that after he and Barbara split in 2015, David Mikkelson married a former escort and porn actress who he promptly hired to work for Snopes.

Barbara claims David embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for exotic trips and prostitutes and insisted on a raise of $120,000, giving himself a $360,000 annual salary. David Mikkelson says his ex-wife took millions of dollars from their joint account to buy property in Las Vegas.

They settled their divorce in 2015 after initially struggling to agree on an arbiter, according to the Mail.
