McKamey animal control officials are asking for help from the community in locating a Siberian Husky that was involved in the attack on another dog and the dog's owner in the area behind Kohl's on Gunbarrel Road.
The attack resulted in multiple bites to the other dog and the dog's owner. Officers tried to capture the dog shortly after the incident, but the dog eluded capture.
The dog was later picked up by a resident from the Gunbarrel Road area and transported to the Wilson/Ooltewah Ringgold Road area but the dog escaped from the fenced yard at this home when it was confined.
The dog is described as a very large male Siberian Husky, black and white in color. He might be neutered. He has a very distinguishing feature, in that the entire center/top portion of his nose is pink, not black. The dog was last seen in the area of Indian Creek Lane.
Anyone who sees the dog should call McKamey at 423 305-6500, or if found outside the city limits in Hamilton County, call the Humane Society emergency line at 423 802-1070. Do not attempt to confine the animal.
If the dog is not located the woman bitten in the incident will have to undergo the post exposure rabies vaccination shot series.
