The McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH), Division of Veterinary Public Health (Animal Control), is asking the public for help in locating a dog involved in a bite investigation.
On March 11, between 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm, a man was standing in front of his home at 7600 block of Cedar Road, Wonder Lake, when another dog entered the home’s garage and attacked the homeowner’s dog.
The man attempted to separate the two dogs when he sustained 100 puncture wounds inflicted by both dogs, causing possible nerve and tendon damage.
The dog has been described as a male pit bull or American bull dog, brown in color, with a black muzzle and a 6” x 8” patch of white on its chest, weighing about 100 pounds.
The dog may or may not have dog-fight related injuries. McHenry County Animal Control Officers have gone door to door, searching the area, approximately seven blocks south and about 10 blocks north of the victim’s address but have not been able to locate the dog or its owner.
Officers are still checking addresses east of Wonder Lake Road behind the post office, between Hamilton Benwell Park and the victim’s residence.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of this dog should contact Animal Control at 815-459-6222.
