A woman was bitten by a dog last week in Davis, sparking a citywide search for the offending animal and its owner.
The Yolo County Sheriff’s Animal Services Section is looking for a Corgi-type mixed-breed dog, brown and red in color, who reportedly bit a female victim while walking along Sycamore Lane at 2 a.m. on Sept. 29.
The victim said the dog’s owner was walking the dog on a leash when she bent down to give the dog a hug and was bitten, according to a press release. The victim described the dog’s owner as a Caucasian male, age 25 to 40, with short brown hair.
The release also says that information regarding this incident is important for “rabies measures.”
Anyone who has information regarding this incident or who knows or owns this animal should contact the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, Animal Services Section at 530-668-5287 or at [email protected]
