Yolo County animal services officials are trying to identify a dog that reportedly bit a woman who tried to rescue it from traffic in West Sacramento on Sunday.
The incident occurred on the Interstate 80 on-ramp at Jefferson Boulevard. Officials said the woman was bitten on the ear as she attempted to contain the dog to keep it out of traffic. Identifying the dog to verify a current rabies vaccination could spare the victim post-exposure rabies treatment.
The dog is described as a large pit bull with a stocky build, brown in color, with white markings. It was last seen on the Interstate 80 on-ramp at Jefferson Boulevard.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department’s animal services section at (530) 668-5287.
