Yolo County Animal Services officials seek the public's help in finding a dog that bit a man in Davis.
The man reported that the incident occurred between 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday as he was walking his own dog on the greenbelt in the area of Albany and Concord avenues in south Davis. The biting dog was on a leash, pulling a man who was walking it. The dog was described as a medium brown and black German shepherd. The person with the dog was described as white, in his late 30s to 40s, about 6 feet tall, with a medium build and brown hair.
The victim and his dog were walking on the sidewalk toward the oncoming dog. The victim told Animal Services that the German shepherd became agitated and was biting the victim's dog. When the victim bent down to rescue his dog, the German shepherd bit him on the wrist, according to an Animals Services news release.
The victim reported that he frequently walks his dog in the area and was not familiar with the dog or the handler.
Officials said reporting a bite and being able to quarantine the offending animal is important for rabies prevention measures.
Anyone with information regarding the incident or the the person who owns the animal is asked to call the Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section, 24 hours a day at (530) 668-5287, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
