Advisory

The Yolo Co Sheriff's Office is asking for help to locate a biting dog involved in an incident at the Woodland Dog Park.

The Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section, is asking the public's help in attempting to locate a biting dog involved in an incident in the Woodland Dog Park on East Street near the Senior Center, Woodland, California. A search of the area was unsuccessful.

The incident occurred on Thursday, February 13, 2014 at approximately 10:30 a.m. An adult female was playing with her dog in park area using a “tug toy”. When the victim attempted to pick up the toy from the ground another dog grabbed it and began to tug on it and the victim was bitten. The victim describes the dog owner as white male adult, approximately 45 years of age, grey hair, approximately 6-0 in height, slender build, wearing a hat.

The victim recalls the dog owner calling the dog “Rosie” and describes the dog as a medium size female brown Pit Bull approximately two years of age.

Anyone having knowledge about this bite incident or the location of the owner or dog is encouraged to report it to Animal Services or the Woodland Police Department. Identifying the dog to verify current rabies vaccination will help possibly prevent the victim from post exposure rabies treatment.

We would also like to remind dog owners that if your dog bites someone, it is your responsibility to report it to Yolo County Animal Services in order for vaccinations to be verified.
