Bullhead City Animal Care and Welfare (ACW) officers are looking for two dogs for standard quarantine procedures and want to remind the public to use caution when approaching stray dogs.
ACW officers responded to the hospital on July 10, 2021 where a 16 year old female was being treated for a dog bite. The female reported that she and two family members were walking their dogs in the 1300 block of Terrace when they were approached by two dogs. One was described as being a black dog the other as a brown dog. Her dog got between her and the black dog and she was bit on the left hand and wrist when she went to retrieve her dog and run away. She said she had to put her dog back down because her hand was hurting and her dog was then bit on a hind leg. One of her family members was able to scare of the dogs with a life jacket.
Please do not approach stray dogs. They may be scared, nervous and unpredictable. Contact ACW officers to respond by calling the non-emergency dispatch number (928) 763-1999. Stay a safe distance away, take note of its location, and give as much detail as possible to ACW officers.
If anyone has any information on this dog bite case, please call the Bureau of Animal Care and Welfare at (928) 763-6000, reference report# 21-19591.
