A dog that has left its secure enclosure and is off of its owner’s property, and has threatened to attack, or has attacked a human being is considered a vicious or dangerous dog.
In the event of a dog attack or a dog threatening to attack, call 9-1-1 immediately. Local law enforcement will respond to assess the situation and take appropriate measures to contain or capture the dog.
If a person has been injured, seek medical assistance as required.
