HENRY COUNTY: On Saturday July 12th a lady name Sheryl was walking down Calhoun Drive in the White Oak Community, when a black bulldog ran up and bit her on the elbow. We have been told that the dog’s owner was contacted and the Henry County Sheriff’s Office was called about the bite. We understand the dog had not had any rabies shots as required by state law.
The health Department was called and they attempted to call a veterinarian but were not able to contact one. The dog’s owner stated they would lock the dog up until Monday when the Sheriff’s Office and Health Department could come and collect the dog for quarantine. Somehow while the dog was locked in the basement it managed to disappear before they could come back to get it.
Sheryl’s family is asking for the communities help in locating the dog. Without the dog Sheryl will have to undergo a series of painful shots.
If anyone has any information you are asked to please call 334-441-6677.
Now for a few questions;
(1) why wasn’t the dog taken the first time officials were called insted of waiting 3 days to get it?
(2) How did the dog manage to conveniently disappear just before they came back to collect it?
(3) Who will be held responsible for the bite and doctor bills?
