Police seek owner of dogs that reportedly bit woman
September 11, 2012
El Dorado County Animal Services is searching for the owner of two German shepherds that bit a 68-year-old woman while she was walking in Rubicon Bay, according to a Monday statement from the county.
The incident happened about 4:45 p.m. Aug. 31. on Highland Drive when the dogs, off leash and running alongside their owner’s truck, approached the woman and bit her on her leg, according to the statement.
The owner of the dogs stopped and allegedly provided incorrect contact information to the woman, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Animal Services officers are looking for the dogs’ owner to verify the dogs are current on their rabies vaccinations. Without this verification, the woman may need to have post-exposure rabies treatments, according to the statement.
The county asks anyone with information to contact Animal Services at 530-573-7925.
