Health Dept. Seeks Information on Dog Bite

Update 5/15/24: The dog involved in the bite is pictured in the below image. The health department is hoping to identify and speak with the dog’s owner to check that the dog is up to date on their rabies shots. If the dog is not up to date on rabies shots, the dog will need to quarantine at a veterinary office for a period of time. Officials try to contact pet owners after an animal bite to verify their pet’s rabies vaccine status; this can prevent the bite victim from needing to get expensive injections to prevent rabies.

The Eau Claire City-County Health Department is asking for your help to find a dog that bit a man on Saturday, May 11 at around 5:30 p.m. The bite happened at the Maple Manor hotel in Eau Claire.

The dog was described to be a brown, large, Shepherd-type breed. No animal owner was seen in the area at the time of the bite. After the incident, the dog ran southeast between S Hastings Way and U.S. Hwy 53.

Officials need to find this dog to determine its health and rabies status.

If anyone has information about this dog, they should contact the Eau Claire Communications Center at 715-839-4972.
