Yolo County Animal Services officers are looking for a dog they say bit a woman riding a bicycle near the Rio Grande entrance to the Green Belt Sunday afternoon.
Officers say the woman was pedaling near another woman and a small child who were each walking a dog on a leash.
"The dog controlled by the adult female lunged at the victim and bit her causing moderate injury," says a Yolo County Sheriff's Office press release. The dog owner kept walking and did not stop to talk to the victim, according to the release.
Officers are trying to track down the dog—described as a small, white terrier with tan markings and wavy hair—to see if the bitten woman may have been exposed to rabies. They're also looking for the dog's owner, a woman about 30 years old with dark, shaggy hair who was wearing a white sweatsuit and holding a cell phone at the time of the bite. She was walking with a five- to six-year-old girl with curly blonde pigtails, according to the release.
Anyone with information can contact Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section 24 hours a day at (530) 668-5287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The press release also reminds Davisites that harboring a fugitive biting dog is a misdemeanor in California.
