Advisory

The Sheriff's Office is asking the public's help in attempting to locate 2 dogs involved in two bite incidents recently in Davis, CA.

The first incident occurred on Wednesday May 28, 2014 at approximately 2:30 pm and was reported by fax by the medical provider on Monday June 2, 2014.
The bite victim is a seven year old male child who was with his grandmother on the south side of the entrance to the North Davis Greenbelt between Catalina and Corona in Davis. The grandmother reports there was a male black Labrador Retriever wearing a collar (unknown color) with one rabies tag and two other tags on the collar. She could not read the tags. The dog was running loose in the area when the bite occurred and no one was observed who might be associated with the dog at the time.

The second incident occurred on Monday June 2, 2014 at 5:45 pm at Sandy Motley Park at Moore and Rockwell Streets, Davis Ca. The bite was reported to Animal Services by the mother on Tuesday June 3, 2014. The bite victim is a seven year old female and she and her mother were in the park when she was bitten by a an all-white dog described as possibility a Pit Bull or Boxer type breed that appeared to be young and out of control. The dog’s ears were erect and it was approximately 16-24 inches tall.

The white dog was accompanied by a person described by the victim’s mother as a sun tanned adult male in his twenties with short dark brown hair and was wearing glasses, shorts and a T-shirt that was possibility red in color with a design across the front. The handler and his dog left the area before information could be exchanged. He was last seen walking towards Pole Line Road and the Greenbelt.

Efforts to locate either animal by Animal Services and the victim’s families have been unsuccessful. Anyone having knowledge about either of these bite incidents or the location of the owners of the dogs is encouraged to report it to Animal Services or the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office. Identifying the dogs to verify current rabies vaccination will help possibly prevent the victims from post exposure rabies treatment.

The Yolo County Sheriff's Office Animal Services Section wants to take this opportunity to remind the public how important it is to not allow your dogs to run loose in the community and to vaccinate your pets for rabies. Keep the public and your pets safe!

Anyone having any information please contact Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section 24 hours a day at (530) 668-5287 or email animal.bite@yolocounty.org.
