Yolo County animal services officials seek the public’s help in finding a dog that bit a child in a park in Dunnigan.

The incident occurred about 7:30 p.m. April 11. A 3-year-old child was with his mother in a park near the 29000 block of Main Street when the youngster attempted to approach a small dog running loose in the park and was bitten, according to county news release. The mother told animal services officials that she had not seen the dog in the area before and has not seen it since the child was bitten. Animal services employees also have been unable to find the animal.

The dog was described as a small gray and white terrier type. The mother did not recall seeing a collar on the dog.

Identifying the dog to verify current rabies vaccination could help spare the child post-exposure rabies treatment.

Anyone with knowledge of the incident, or the location of dog or its owner, is asked to call the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, Animal Services Section at (530) 668-5287, or email animal.bite@yolocounty.org.
