Terrier sought after biting incident

By June 3, 2011

The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department Animal Services Section is attempting to find a biting dog in Davis.

A 60-year-old man was bitten by a brown terrier that was on leash in North Davis Park between 2:30 and 3 p.m. Saturday, May 28.

The victim was walking in the park when he encountered three people — two women and one man, about 20 to 25 years old — with two dogs on leash, he said. As he walked by, one of the dogs bit him.

The victim said he frequently walks through this area, but had never seen the three people or their dogs before.

Information about this incident is important for rabies prevention measures, a department spokeswoman said. Rabies is a deadly disease, so if the dog is not found soon, the victim may have to undergo rabies treatment.

Anyone having any information about the incident, or who knows who owns the dog, is asked to call Animal Services at (530) 668-5287 or email [email protected]
