State regulators have suspended a Duluth provider's license after her dogs allegedly bit an individual at her home day care.

According to Minnesota Department of Human Service records, Roni Budde's license was temporarily and immediately suspended on July 2 while St. Louis County investigated the reports.

The DHS affirmed the temporary suspension August 28 after Budde withdrew her appeal. 

According to a Department of Human Services spokesperson, the department has 90 days to issue a final decision. After that final decision, Budde then has a chance to appeal again.  

Budde had been operating the day care out of her home on 71st Avenue West.

When reached over the phone, Budde said she did not wish to make a comment until the process was completed.
