Dog sought after biting incident

From The Ithaca Journal

The Tompkins County Health Department is trying to contact the owner of a dog named Lucy that bit a 20-year-old female between 6 and 7 p.m. Sunday evening in front of a restaurant on Aurora Street between State and Seneca streets.
Lucy is 2 years old and mostly black with pit bull features, according to the Health Department.
The bite victim described the dog owner as a 6-foot-tall middle-aged man with gray hair.
If the dog can be located and remains healthy until Aug. 17, the risk of rabies infection can be ruled out and rabies post-exposure shots will not be needed.
The Health Department urges anyone with information regarding this dog to call the Environmental Health Division immediately at 274-6688.
