Comments Off

A woman was walking in Iowa City on Saturday morning when she was attacked by a mixed breed dog. The woman suffered a dog bite on her leg. The victim described the dog as being either a German Shepherd or a Collie mix.

According to police, a female pedestrian was walking in the 900 block of North Dodge Street when she passed an unidentified white woman who was walking two dogs around 9:20 a.m. As the pedestrian passed the woman with the dogs, one of them lunged and bit her on the thigh and punctured her skin.

The woman left the scene with her two dogs. The police are searching for her or anyone that may know who she is. They need to know if the dog is current on its rabies vaccination otherwise the victim will have to undergo treatment.
