SACRAMENTO - A woman bitten by a Labrador retriever at a Davis park last Friday hopes the dog's owner comes forward to verify their pet has been vaccinated against rabies. Otherwise, she may have to undergo post-exposure rabies treatment.
A woman was walking the black female lab in North Star Park about 10 o'clock Friday morning when the dog bit the victim who had stopped to pet her, according to the Animal Services Section of the Yolo County Sheriff's Office.
The woman walking the dog told the victim the lab was healthy but did not provide information about its vaccination status.
It is an owner's responsibility to inform Animal Services if their dog bites someone, so vaccinations can be verified.
Anyone with information about this was urged to contact Animal Services at (530) 668-5287 24 hours a day or email
