“It’s now a bite call,” says Patrol Officer Brian Bowman of the Fair Oaks District Station who was first on the scene when dispatch directed Animal Control to pick up a loose dog. Bowman was able to catch the young dog and put it in his vehicle to await the arrival of Animal Control Officer Henley Thomas on July 12. A youth approached Bowman and said that the dog had bitten him. Thomas will take possession of the dog, interview the victim, and attempt to find the dog owner.
