Dog sought for biting Davis bicyclist

Yolo County Animal Services officials need help in finding a dog that bit a bicyclist in Davis.

The bicyclist was riding in the green belt near Rio Grande Street on Sunday about noon when she was bit by a mixed breed terrier with tan markings and wavy fur. The dog was on a leash held by a woman.

The dog owner was described as about 30 years old, medium build, about 5 feet 7 inches tall. She had dark, short hair, was wearing a white sweat suit and carried a cell phone.

A girl with the woman had a second, similar dog on a leash. The girl, about five years old, had her hair in pigtails.

The biting dog lunged at the bicyclist and bit her. The dog owner walked on and the bicyclist was not able to get her name.

Identifying the dog to verify current rabies vaccination might help the dog bite victim avoid rabies treatment. Anyone who knows the dog owner is asked to call the Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section, at (530) 668-5287.
