Madison health officials seek information about pit bull that bit man on the East Side

By Nick Heynen, Wisconsin State Journal

Madison health officials are seeking information about a dog that bit a man, hoping if they find the dog it will keep the man from having to get a series of painful and costly rabies shots.
The incident happened at about 1 p.m. Thursday on the bike path near 181 S. Fair Oaks Ave., according to a Madison-Dane County Public Health Department release.
According to the man, a tan pit bull with a white chest and medium length hair was trying to attack his dog. The man was bitten while protecting his pet.
Officials are asking anyone with information about this incident to call the Madison police and fire dispatcher at 255-2345 and ask for the animal services officer. If the pit bull is not located, the health department says the man will have to get precautionary rabies shots.
