Animal Services officials seek dog that bit woman in Davis

Yolo County Animal Services is asking the public’s help in finding a dog that bit a woman in Davis last week.

The incident occurred about 10 a.m. April 14 and a medical provided reported it to county Animal Services on Wednesday, according to a Yolo Count Sheriff’s Office news release.

The woman was walking on Sycamore Lane in Davis when she saw a loose dog. The dog came to her and she was able to pet it. But when she reached to check the dog’s collar, the dog bit her and ran away, officials said. The incident occurred near Sycamore Lane and Alvarado Avenue.

The woman described the dog as a large golden retriever/chow mix, with long brown hair. She reported that it was wearing a chain-type collar.

Officials stress that identifying the dog to verify current rabies vaccination is important. Anyone with information related to the case is asked to call the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Section at 530-668-5287, or email
