Man pays fine, court costs in case of caged dog in lake
  The man charged in an incident where a dead dog was found in a cage in Grand Lake entered a guilty waiver on Monday in Auglaize County Municipal Court.
Mardie Biederman of Panama City, Fla., 43, entered the waiver and paid $132.30 in court costs and fine for the minor misdemeanor charge.
He had been charged with "duties of dog bite person." Biederman failed to report a dog attack and failed to turn the deceased dog over to the board of health for examination, court records say.
The law says after a dog bites someone it must be reported to the local health department and the dog must be quarantined for 10 days so it can be checked for disease.
Officials claim Biederman shot the mixed pit bull dog after it attacked a family member and then put the dog in a cage and dumped it in the lake. A passer-by spotted the floating cage and called authorities.
