Bullhead City Animal Care and Welfare (ACW) officers are looking for a stray dog for standard quarantine procedures and want to remind the public to use caution when approaching stray dogs.
On July 21, 2021 ACW received a call from Valley View Medical Center regarding a 9 year-old female that had been bitten on the face by a stray dog in the 1400 block of Bryan Drive at about 6 p.m. The victim’s mother reported that she was in the house while her daughters were playing outside on the driveway when she heard them screaming. When she ran out to investigate, she saw a dog with a large black spot on its right side running towards Club House Drive. The bite was near her daughter’s left eyelid and nose.
The dog is described as a mostly white, pit bull looking dog with a large black spot that ran from the dog’s ribs to its back on the right side. The dog was not wearing a collar.
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# 21-20786.
