CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The Laramie Police Department has announced that Animal Control is asking for help from the public in identifying a dog that allegedly bit an individual.

Authorities say that on June 2, 2020 at approximately 4:15 p.m. a person was bit by a dog while walking across the southeast corner of the Safeway parking lot, near the storage/construction pods.

“As the person was walking by a truck with 2 dogs in the bed, one of the dogs jumped out of the truck, bit the person on the leg, and then jumped back into the truck. The dog that bit the person is described as a medium-sized, lean, yellow dog wearing a reddish-brown collar. The dog that remained in the bed of the truck is described as medium-sized and white with a black spot on its back,” the police said.

According to law enforcement, the truck is white with black trim and has a 5th wheel tailgate. Locating the dog in question is important for rabies monitoring purposes.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this dog or the owner is asked to call the Animal Control Unit at 307-721-5385 or the non-emergency Dispatch line at 307-721-2526.
