Advisory

The Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section, is asking the public's help in attempting to locate a biting dog in Woodland.

The incident occurred on Friday July 4, 2014 at approximately 8:30 am. An adult female was walking with her dog on leash in the area of 1100 block of California Street when she reportedly saw a Siberian Husky being walked on leash across the street. The bite victim’s dog slipped its collar and ran to the Husky and a dog fight ensued. The victim reports she was bitten by both her dog and the Husky while trying to break up the dog 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. The bite was reported to Animal Services by the victim’s medical provider as well as the victim on July 8, 2012. Efforts to locate the animal by Animal Services have been unsuccessful.

The victim describes the dog as a black and white Siberian Husky of medium size wearing a collar and being walked on leash of an unknown color. The handler was a white female, grey hair approximately 60 years of age. The victim cannot recall any further description on either the handler or the dog.

Anyone having knowledge about this bite incident or the location of the owner of the dog 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 victim 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 report bite incidents. Please 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.
