WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - The Animal Services Section of the Yolo County Sheriff's Office hopes the public can help with a dog bite case.
According to a news release issued by the sheriff's department, a jogger on the 3500 block of Bridge Lake Drive in West Sacramento on Oct. 6 was bitten by a dog on a leash. The time was about 11 a.m. The woman walking the dog assured the jogger her dog was inoculated against rabies but the jogger didn't obtain any other information about the dog or woman to confirm that. Now the victim may have to undergo a series of post-exposure rabies prevention vaccinations.
The dog was described as of medium size, short-haired and mostly black with some reddish markings. The dog was on a red leash.
The woman walking the dog was described as white, around 50 years old, with long, light brown hair down to the middle of her back. She wore a white t-shirt, black spandex shorts and very large glasses, according to the jogger.
Anyone with information about the dog and/or its owner was asked to contact the sheriff's Animal Services Section 24 hours a day at (530) 668-5287 or by email.
