The Carroll County Health Department is seeking a black pit bull, or the dog’s owner, after the animal bit a person Tuesday in Lineboro.
According to a health department media release, the bite occurred around 3 p.m. on Young Man’s Fancy Drive, near Shaffer Mill Road.
The dog was described as a black pit bull with white on its chest wearing a red collar with tags.
Health department officials need to locate and confirm the health of the dog by Friday, Nov. 2, or else the bite victim will have to undergo a series of vaccinations to protect against rabies.
Anyone with information about the dog or its owner can call the health department at 410-876-1884 or the Humane Society of Carroll County at 410-848-4810.
