Animal Services seeks biting dog in Woodland

By From page A7 | July 13, 2014

Yolo County Animal Services is seeking the public’s help in locating a dog that bit a woman in Woodland earlier this month.

The incident occurred at about 8:30 a.m. July 4 in the 1100 block of California Street, where the bite-victim’s dog escaped from its leash and became involved in a fight with a Siberian husky. Both dogs bit the woman as she tried to break up the fight.

“The victim was so upset about the injuries to her own dog she neglected to get any information on the husky from its handler,” Chief Animal Services Officer Vicky Fletcher said in a news release.

She described the dog as a medium-sized, black-and-white Siberian husky, wearing a collar and being walked on leash of an unknown color. The handler was a white female around 60 years old, with gray hair.

Anyone with knowledge about this bite incident or the location of the dog’s owner of the dog is encouraged to report it to Animal Services at 530-668-5287 or [email protected] Identifying the dogs to verify current rabies vaccination will help possibly prevent the victim from post-exposure rabies treatment.
