Public's help sought to find dog that bit man in Davis

Yolo County Animal Services officials are asking the public's help in identifying and finding a dog that bit a man in Davis last week.

About 2 p.m. Thursday, a man reported being bitten by a fawn-colored boxer-type dog while he was walking in the area of Valdora Street in south Davis, near the Safeway store.

The victim said a woman was walking two boxers, both of them on leashes. When the man passed, one of the dogs turned and bit him, leaving puncture wounds on his arm, according to a Yolo County Sheriff's Office news release.

The woman was described as white, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a slim build and short, reddish-blond hair.

Yolo County Animal Services has been unable to find the dog or its owner. Officials said information regarding the incident is important for rabies prevention measures.

Anyone with information about the incident or who owns the animal is asked to call Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section, at (530) 668-5287, or email
