The Laramie Police Department is seeking the public's help in locating a dog that bit a woman last Friday.

According to a release from the Police Department, on April 10th, 2015 at approximately 5:00 p.m., a dog bite occurred at Lee’s Mobile Home Park located at 1664 N. Cedar Street.

The victim said that a dog had come into her yard and that she was bitten on the hand when she was tried to look at the ID tag on the dog’s collar. The dog was described as medium in size, possibly 20-25 pounds, and had a medium brown colored wiry coat.

The victim said she thought the dog was probably a terrier or terrier mix. The dog was described as wearing a black colored collar with a round shaped, silver colored ID tag.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this dog or the owner is asked to call the Animal Control Unit at 721-5385 or the non-emergency Dispatch line at 721-2526.

The Animal Control Unit would like to remind everyone that animal bites could involve exposure to rabies and that all animal bites must be reported to the Animal Control Unit immediately. Should you be bit, it is imperative that victims of animal bites try to identify the specific animal and the owner’s contact information while they are still present.
