Help needed to find dog that bit UC Davis student

The Yolo County sheriff's animal services section needs help in finding a dog that bit a University of California, Davis student.

Authorities want to find the animal so that the student will not have to undergo "post exposure" rabies treatment.

The female student was bitten March 10 by a dark brown, male terrier weighing about 50 pounds. She tried to pet the dog when it was tied up at the arboretum on the UC Davis campus.

Animal services officials reminded the public to use caution when approaching any animal they don't know. Dogs may exercise their protective instincts and bite, according to a sheriff's office press release.

Anyone who knows who owns the dog is asked to call the animal services section at (530) 668-5287 or e-mail
