ALBION – The Orleans County Health Department is seeking help in finding the owner of a dog that bit a pedestrian in the Village of Albion on Thursday, Aug. 29, at approximately 7:15 p.m.

A pedestrian was bitten by a small yellow/white dog with big ears being walked by four children. The dog was on a leash and is described as beagle/cocker spaniel size. The children and dog were walking eastbound along the Erie Canal just east of the Ingersoll Bridge when the dog bit the westbound pedestrian.

“The purpose in locating the owner of the dog is to make sure the dog is up-to-date in its anti-rabies vaccine,” said Sarah Balduf, Environmental Director of Genesee and Orleans Counties. “If the owner cannot be located, the individual will have to go through unnecessary treatment.”

Anyone with information on the dog and/or dog owner is asked to contact the Orleans County Health Department at 585-589-3278.
